Celebrate our Nation’s 39th Birthday with a cracking display of sparks and sounds at the explosive Singapore Fireworks Festival 2004. Watch in wonder and awe as dazzling fireworks split the evening skies.

Be a part of Singapore’s first ever large-scale fireworks festival! It promises to be a grand affair never seen in the nation, complete with a vast assortment of fireworks and spectacularly choreographed displays.

Through a careful selection process, teams from the United States (Chicago) and Hong Kong have been identified as teams with choreographed displays most befitting this occasion. These teams have been responsible for many musically-choreographed displays for the most prestigious events in the US and internationally.

Lighting up the skies with night shell pyrotechnics such as Peonies, Gold Mines, Willow and Palm Tree Shells, Crossettes and Tiger Tails, these teams will also be showcasing special effects like stroves, comet strings, flashes and cross stars.

Adding to the festivities, there would also be 4 nights of Carnival Concert. Each artiste extravaganza concert night will be filled with an impressive line-up of international talent.

The carnival proper would be a gastronomic platform with more than 50 food stalls with an international fare.

There is also an amusement area with several new rides that have never been to our shores - Jumping Star is just one of the few.

The Singapore Fireworks Festival is one of several events lined-up under Celebrate Singapore, a month-long series of events taking place from July 30 - Aug 31 to commemorate Singapore’s 39th National Day.

With a host of events spread over Marina Bay, the Singapore Indoor Stadium and the Civic District over one month, Celebrate Singapore offers Singaporeans as well as visitors many different and exciting platforms/events in which they can participate and be a part of this year’s National Day celebrations.

“Come watch us set the skies ablaze and make it a nation’s celebration to remember with your family and friends from overseas. Celebrate our Nation’s Birthday with the hip and happening crowd at the Marina Promenade” says Mr. Leslie Ong – Event Organizer, Unusual Productions Pte Ltd.

Unusual Productions intends to use the Singapore Fireworks Festival as a platform for all Singaporeans and our foreign friends to celebrate National Day together. More importantly, everyone’s invited! Hence, from this year onwards, we hope the Singapore Fireworks Festival is going to be an annual event.

Said Ms Lynette Pang, Assistant Director (Entertainment) at the Singapore Tourism Board: “We are pleased to support the inaugural Fireworks Festival, which we are confident will give Singaporeans and visitors some thrilling action to look forward to over three weekends in August.

The Fireworks Festival is not only a fitting way to celebrate National Day but is also an event which holds much tourism potential. In the long-term, we hope to grow the festival to become an iconic event that will enhance Singapore’s positioning as the Events Capital of Asia, and a mainstay in our Uniquely Singapore calendar-of-events.”

The Singapore Fireworks Festival 2004 is a non-gated event which is expected to draw a 50,000 crowd on weekdays and 200,000 crowd on weekends.
