Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2016
Certified Family-friendly!

The largest Countdown celebration in Singapore, the Marina Bay Singapore Countdown is THE countdown event to head down to for the sheer amount of fringe activities, brilliant light-up of the wishing spheres against the Marina Bay backdrop and of course, its 8-minute long Fireworks display!

Celebrate a Jubilee year well spent amidst 20,000 wishing spheres bearing collective hopes and dreams for the year ahead. Matching 2015's display, the pyrotechnics to usher in 2016 will last eight minutes with festive lighting of buildings around the Bay and a special light projection show on the facade of The Fullerton Hotel.
