This year’s National Day Celebrations will again be rather different. The National Day Parade (NDP) on 9 August will go ahead at The Float @ Marina Bay, but has been designed with the home viewer in mind. There is no public balloting for NDP 2021 tickets, which will be distributed to COVID-19 front liners, essential workers and community volunteers. While we may not get to attend the SG56 parade physically and collect fancy goodie bags, with the help of NDP E-Vouchers and other interesting National Day 2021 promotions and deals, we can still put on our red and white and celebrate our home, our land and our family.
22July 2021 Update – All dining-in is of course suspended at all F&B outlets till 18 August 2021.
Many F&B outlets and hotels have interesting National Day 2021 promotions and special offers. There are fantastic 56% discount for Singapore’s 56th Birthday and indulgent staycation with gastronomic delights for the special national holiday. The NDP E-Vouchers this year are simple to use and give access to some great deals.
