National Day 2020 will be a unique one in many ways. In the midst of a pandemic, we still have many reasons to celebrate Singapore’s 55th anniversary as a nation. Food is of course an important reason and also an important part of our celebration.
Singapore National Day 2020
Singapore National Day 2020 will be unlike others in the past. This year’s National Day Parade – NDP2020 – will be held in the morning in Padang but will be brought into every Singapore home. It will be a digitalised and immersive experience with a series of home engagement activities to encourage audience participation. In the evening, a celebratory show will be held at The Star Performing Arts Centre. It will culminate in a nationwide anthem and pledge moment and fireworks being set off across more than 10 different sites.
When Singaporeans celebrate, we eat. A NDP-themed family cooking activity will be part of the NDP2020 Home Engagement Activities. If cooking is not something you want to do on the nation’s birthday, there are many hotels and restaurants offering special sets and deals perfect for family to celebrate National Day 2020 and enjoy NDP2020 at home. Check out also the NDP E-Discount Booklet for discount coupons which can be used at various F&B outlets for dine-in or takeaway.
