In line with Singapore’s bicentennial commemoration in 2019, the upcoming edition of River Hongbao in February 2019 will feature the most spectacular fireworks in the event’s 33-year history.

Some of the top pyrotechnics wizards from around the world will congregate in Singapore to deliver spectacular fireworks shows for the bicentennial edition of River Hongbao 2019, which will be held from 3rd to 10th February 2019 at The Float @ Marina Bay.

Hailing from Australia, China, USA and Italy, these global award-winning fireworks experts not only offer spectators diversity in the different types of fireworks and choreography each specialises in, they have amassed a dazzling portfolio of work for world-class events.

As the fireworks have always been a stand-out event for fans of River Hongbao – which is free for entry – the organisers want to make sure that the special “Fireworks Spectacular” can be enjoyed by as many people as possible.

Visitors will be able to enjoy the fireworks, which will last for at least three minutes, on all eight nights of River Hongbao. On four special nights (February 3, 4, 9 and 10), visitors will be more than triply dazzled by 12 minutes’ worth of fireworks spread over three time slots per night.

The main sponsor for the fireworks is POSB, and 3rd February has been designated as POSB Night. Singapore Press Holdings Chinese Media Group is the sponsor for the fireworks on the eve of Chinese New Year. Chairman of the River Hongbao organising committee, Jurong GRC MP Ang Wei Neng, said, “2019 is a very special year for Singapore. As one of the first big events of the year, River Hongbao is the perfect platform to not only usher in the Spring Festival, but also to kick-start the string of activities that will continue with the rest of our bicentennial commemoration throughout the year.”

Fans of River Hongbao can expect the usual larger-than-life lantern displays, interactive fun, a food street, and nightly performances. More information will be shared at a later stage.

Said Mr Ang, “The River Hongbao – bicentennial edition will not only be a joyous occasion celebrated by the Chinese, but will also be suitable for all races, all cultures and all ages, especially the amazing fireworks display.”
