State Flag Flypast, Aerial Flypast, Red Lions Freefall displaySea Display, Fireworks and a lot more you can catch even if you are not in front of the floating platform at Marina Bay. Well, the first two you could see from most parts near the Singapore River but for the latter ones, we would suggest to park with kids at Marina Bay and particularly around the waterfront promenade or Marina Bay Sands board walk around the ART SCIENCE Museum outside The Shoppes at the Marina Bay (View map: You could easily walk around in the waterfront area next to the ArtScience museum and see some of the NDP activities, fireworks and could even have a good and FREE view of the floating platform while enjoying the food offered by nearby restaurants. Timing wise, 6:00pm - 8:15pm will be good!
