Here's Where You Can Welcome 2021 and Catch Fireworks for Countdown This Year
It’s that time of the year where everyone goes
“What? It’s the end of 2020 already? What happened to this year?!”
Well… most of our year has flown by.
And I think we can all safely agree that it has quite a disaster.
While we still have our decorations for Christmas this year, countdown parties will be slightly different.
Like… it’ll be the first time the Marina Bay New Year’s Eve countdown celebration will be without fireworks.
While we would not be able to witness our iconic Marina Bay fireworks this year, fret not!
There will still be 11 heartland locations that will have fireworks set off for us to view from the comfort of our homes.

The exact vantage points are not announced by People’s Association (PA) yet, so do keep your eyes peeled!
And if you’re not comfortable with squeezing with the heartland crowd…
You can also literally view it from your homes since they will be streamed online as well.
They will be on the Facebook pages of these constituencies.
In addition, there will be 12 year-end virtual programmes hosted by various constituencies.
For instance, Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC’s Virtual Countdown 2021 will be held on Dec 31 from 10.30pm and will feature local artistes like Sezairi, MICappella, TheLionCityBoy and The Lorong Boys.
It will be hosted by Pornsak.
The Nanyang ward in West Coast GRC will also have their virtual programme which would begin from 10pm on New Year’s Eve, and it includes a scavenger hunt and performances by student groups.
Marina Bay Countdown Party
If you’re someone who has been enjoying Marina Bay’s countdown ambience every year and hope to just inhale a little of it, you can do so…
Virtually with this year’s Let’s Celebrate 2021.
It will feature various homegrown artistes and international acts who will be performing at different locations of Marina Bay.
The event will be hosted by DJs 987 DJs Sonia Chew and Joakim Gomez, and will feature artistes like Jason Derulo, Ronan Keating and Jeremy Zucker.
To make the event more interactive, viewers are encouraged to record and share their Countdown Moment on social media using the hashtag #SGTogetherABetter21.
You can catch Let’s Celebrate 2021 live on meWATCH, Mediacorp Entertainment on YouTube and Channel 5 on 31 Dec 2020, 10.30pm to 12.15am.
Light Shows at Marina Bay
For those who wish to head down to Marina Bay, there will be two light shows to enjoy.
Shine A Light features 60 moving beams of light that will be projected into the night skies.
This light show is designed to symbolise unity, positivity and resilience.
Another light show titled Share The Moment will be held from 25 to 31 Dec 2020 at The Fullerton Hotel and Merlion.
The same show will begin a day later from 26 Dec 2020 at the ArtScience Museum.
All the light shows will take place at 15-minute intervals from 8pm to 10.30pm nightly, with extended displays on New Year’s Eve, when the last show will start at 11.45pm.
While this year’s countdown will be slightly different from the rest, it might be one that we will always remember.
