Presented by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2023 will bring back the highly anticipated fireworks display after a two-year absence due to safety measures necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Come 31 December, members of the public will be able to view the fireworks at midnight from around the Bay to welcome the new year.

STAR ISLAND, the multi-sensory fireworks musical extravaganza, will also be returning to The Float at Marina Bay. Replete with artisanal fireworks, dazzling performances, pyrotechnics and state-of-the-art technologies, the ticketed show promises a thrilling and memorable experience for spectators. For the first time, the STAR ISLAND experience will also extend to the Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza with a special pre-show activation. More programme and ticketing details will be announced soon here.

In partnership with the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC) and Giving.sg, Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2023 will present Share the Moment – a series of light projection shows on the facades of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and the Merlion in the last week of December. With the theme “City of Good”, Share the Moment will feature never-before-seen original artworks by students from local educational institutions, which celebrate acts of giving both big and small, and depict a vision of Singapore where individuals, organisations and leaders come together to give their best for others.
