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...

They'll gather near Starbucks.
