What To Do This Weekend (20 to 22 Aug) - Stay Safe!

ICMYI: The National Day Parade is still happening on 21st August, and will involve nearly 1,200 performers. NDP 2021 will feature a mix of live performances and virtual ones. And fun fact: The parade will feature both augmented reality and full animated films for the first time. Really sibei cool.

If you intend to head down, the areas around The Float @ Marina Bay will have enhanced security and distancing measures to prevent crowding. Better to stay home and enjoy the performances live on tv at 6:05pm!
