To usher in the new year, fireworks will be displayed at 11 heartland locations on New Year’s Eve. 

It was announced last month that the fireworks display will be set off at different heartland locations across Singapore as health and safety remain a priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. There will not be any fireworks at this year’s Marina Bay’s New Year’s Eve countdown. 

On Wednesday (Dec 23), the People’s Association announced that the fireworks display will take place at Bedok, Bishan, Boon Lay, Geylang, Hougang, Jurong, Tampines, Tiong Bahru, Woodlands, Yew Tee and the Nanyang ward in West Coast Group Representation Constituency (GRC). 

The fireworks will be livestreamed on the Facebook pages of the respective constituencies and residents are encouraged to catch it from home. Safe management measures will be in place at the sites for the fireworks to ensure public safety too.

As part of the celebrations, 16 virtual engagement programmes have been lined up as well. 

Two of those, which will be hosted by various constituencies, will take place this Sunday (Dec 27). 

Another 12 will be hosted on New Year’s Eve, and the remaining two on New Year’s Day.

Those looking to celebrate New Year’s Eve in the city can head to Marina Bay for two light shows. They are Shine A Light and Share The Moment at The Promontory and The Fullerton Hotel and Merlion respectively.
