Singapore’s leading countdown party gets bigger every year.  The most anticipated countdown of the year will include many exciting activities along Marina Bay.

The “Explosion of Colour” at the Fullerton Hotel will combine light and colour with a digital art showcase that looks ahead into a vibrant, dynamic new year. Be enthralled by a myriad of free programmes at the Esplanade – including music performances, roving acts and craft workshops that culminate in a spectacular New Year’s Eve countdown at Marina Bay.

For this major countdown event, members of the public get to write their dreams and wishes for the New Year on some of the 25,000 plastic spheres to be distributed around Marina Bay. To top it all off, revellers will be treated to a dazzling display of fireworks to welcome the New Year.
