2. Garden Rhapsody (SG50 Special)

Mesmerizing Garden Rhapsody at the Supertrees!
This special SG50 edition of the Garden Rhapsody is not be missed! Featuring lasers for the very first time, it presents a medley of familiar national day songs sung by Benjamin Kheng of The Sam Willows and other prominent local vocalists. As we stood there watching the presentation, my heart swelled with nationalism, pride and gratitude. I sang aloud with the daughter with gusto and was almost moved to tears by the sense of coming of age for Singapore. What a beautiful garden, what a beautiful land to call our ‘Home’. Highly recommended for families in the lead up to our 50th National Day.

GBTB is another good alternative to catch the Republic of Singapore Air Force’s Black Knights as they fly past the Supertrees in an unprecedented “50” formation to salute the nation. Visitors can also enjoy the “Majulah Singapura” themed fireworks display along the waterfront promenade. Pack your picnic mats, buy takeaways from the nearby Satay By The Bay, enjoy a local feast with the family as you enjoy the aerial flypast and spectacular fireworks displays! A truly unique Singaporean way to bond which the kids will remember for a long time!
