Count down to 2012 and Fireworks show at Marina Bay

"The Marina Bay Singapore Countdown has grown over the years such that it has become almost a tradition to usher in the New Year at this very special place. We are very happy to see the community embracing Marina Bay as their favourite spot to celebrate the year-end festive season. With the completion of all the key projects and opening of new public spaces around the Bay this year, we welcome everyone to come down to the  Bay and enjoy the array of programmes and activities lined up for them." says URA CEO in a joint press statement of Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay and the Urban Redevelopment Authority about Marina Bay Singapore Countdown. This will be the 7th year of now traditional show whose main attraction is a spectacular fireworks show in the first minutes of the new year.

This traditional fireworks show, performed at the mouth of Singapore river, where Singapore story began, is in its 7th year and offers a spectacular fireworks show accompanied by a special composed music for the show. This year first time, fireworks music will be accompanied by vocals by soprano Khor Ai Ming and the CHIJ Primary (Toa Payoh) children’s choir. It will  be broadcast ‘live’ on MediaCorp radio station Symphony 92.4FM. Those who are not able to make it to Marina Bay and join tens of thousands packing the place, can also catch the fireworks presentation ‘live’ on Channel NewsAsia.

According to the press releases, this year’s Countdown fireworks will be set off from the octagonal-shaped pontoons moored in the waters of Marina Bay which will allow spectators in every corner of the bay to enjoy a stunning pyrotechnic display. Complementing the various formations of fireworks that rocket through the sky, there will also be more low-level fireworks skipping over the surface of the bay to create an up-close-and-personal experience. The fireworks theme is named “Celebration of Life”, the fireworks display and music will reflect the soul of the community, unifying the people as we recount our experiences and greet the New Year with hope and joy.

The best place to watch the new year fireworks show? It will definitely be the Infinity Pool on the top of Marina Bay Sands Hotel.
