    Not sure if anyone already posted this but here it is to share. Might be a good chance to practice fireworks shooting for all 3 shows.

    Latest Singapore National Day 2009 Fireworks:

    For NDP 2009, fireworks will be launched during:

    1. all 3 NE Shows (11, 18, 25 July 09)

    2. Preview Parade (1 Aug 09), and

    3. Actual Parade (9 Aug 09)

    On National Day (9 Aug 09), the fireworks will last longer than during the NE Shows and Preview.

    The fireworks are expected to be launched near the Floating Platform @ Marina Bay at the end of the Parade/Show, around 8pm - 8.30pm.

    IMPORTANT NOTE:
    If bad weather sets in, the NE Shows and Parades may be delayed, cut short or postponed. If this happens, the fireworks will be similarly affected.

    Alternative date for Preview Parade: 2 Aug 09.

    Alternative date for Actual Parade: 15 Aug 09.

    There was a bit of fireworks for combined rehearsal 2. The canon gun salute is actually on a moving floating platform that can move about. I think the f16 segment was cut short today, they just did a simple flypast. And btw i think the open field next to one marina boulevard is under construction, so can forget about going there take fireworks already.
