Thread: NDP Rehearsal Aerial Display & Fireworks --- Anyone Interested?

    Default NDP Rehearsal Aerial Display & Fireworks --- Anyone Interested?

    Hey guys,

    So, as the title says, anyone interested to go to the Esplanade/ MBS area to take pics of these?
    I already went there today... recommend reaching at around 6pm at MBS based on what I saw...

    If there is a good enough response, then I will organise an outing in this thread...
    The tentative date should be next Sat, cause it's still school hols for me and I'm very busy when school starts!

    If you are interested, please state it in this thread!

    Thanks for reading ;D

    MBS and Promenade would be ideal as the wind direction is from south-east.
    Areas affected by the fireworks smoke will be Esplanade Drive and Esplanade itself.

    The Outdoor Theatre at Esplanade allows a bird's eye view of the choppers' launching the navy divers but wet lens are a definite.

    21 Gun salute, between Esplanade and Esplande bridge (Back view) or MBS (Front view).

    The response seems good enough...

    So where do we meet? Cause I'm not too familiar with the bus routes etc. in case any of you are gonna take them, so I wanna get a convenient place to meet for all of us.
    But the shooting area will be at Helix Bridge/ the corner of MBS facing the stadium...
    If any of you have any suggestions, please state them here, and if the general consensus is that location, then we will meet there!

    I should be going to Merlion Park to take the fireworks…not sure if it's ideal but being a NDP rehearsal, all he roads will either be closed or jammed near esplanade area so…i think i'll give that place a miss and MBS parking is just too expensive

    Based on what I experienced last week, I highly doubt that there would be jams...
    Even at 6++, the road leading to the Merlion Park was very smooth flowing...
    Why not walk that from Marina Square if you do not wish to park?
    Either ways, happy shooting!

    Default Re: NDP Rehearsal Aerial Display & Fireworks --- Anyone Interested?

    Urhh... I thought it's every Saturday from last Saturday to 9 August?
    As there will be a rehersal ( NE Show, Combined Rehersal etc.) every Sat...
    They will fire the fireworks during the rehersals, no?
    And I'm planning the outing for tomorrow
