FTW Singapore National Day Parade

CELEBRATE Singapore’s 47th birthday here in Melbourne! We’ve got a pair of tickets to giveaway to see the live broadcast of the National Day Parade, courtesy of Singaporeans of Victoria.  

Melbourne 2012 win tickets

WHILE you won’t be able to feel the wet, soggy caress of Singapore’s humid climate and experience the country’s 47th National Day Parade live, you can still join other fellow Singaporeans in Melbourne as they celebrate Singapore’s National Day this Thursday at Waterfront Venues in Docklands.

Soak up the spirit of patriotism through the live telecast of the parade hosted by Gurmit Singh, Jean Danker, Jaokim Gomez, Sharon Au and Suhami Yusof, and featuring Singapore’s music darling Olivia Ong who will be leading this year’s theme song.

In addition to the parade, there’ll also be performances by Singaporean music celebrities Nathan Hartono (do check out his video below!) and DJ Tinc.


Oh, and food. It’s a Singaporean event. How can there not be food? Served up at 6.30pm, according to organisers.

The official festivities will be followed by an after party.
