    Official starting time of the parade is 6pm. Flag fly-past is 6.45pm and helicopter "splashing" water at marina bay is around 7pm. Fire work is 8.15pm and 8.30pm. I have been to all the rehearsal every Saturaday until I know the timing.

    How can they shoot from IR area where there is construction going on, the firework will be fired from a water platform just in front of the IR area and a few skycrapers.

    It will be quite difficult to shoot the parade as most of the people are given ticket a months back.. You may like to go to Esplande bridge, but there will be thousand of people crowded there...so see where you stand...

    Ha ha, if you are new the Singapore, there is NO STREET PARADE in the National Day Parade. In the past when they use the stadium, the parade is INSIDE the stadium.

    Guard of Honour (G.O.H) contingent will form up around 1630 hrs, to commence the uncasing of SAF colours at Suntec City. Around 1700 hrs, they will march all the way to the gallery and wait outside.

    Performance will start around 1730 hrs, parade ceremony will commence around 1815 hrs.

    1. The Red Lion Day Free Fall - 1809 hrs +/-
    2. State Flag Fly Pass - 1849 hrs +/-
    3. Fighter Jet Fly Pass - 1851 hrs +/-
    4. Bomb Burst - 1852 hr +/-
    5. NS 40 performance (Chinook Diver Drop) - 1909 hrs +/-
    6. Apache Salutation - 1915 hrs +/-
    7. Fire Works - 2010 hrs +/-

    +/- is depends on weather and the actual activities that is happening around the ground.
