Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2023! Are you ready?

With 2022 almost coming to an end, Singapore’s iconic Marina Bay precinct is getting ready to welcome 2023 with a series of grand programmes and activities, including spectacular light projections created by students from local educational institutions, and the long-awaited return of the countdown fireworks — the first since the COVID-19 pandemic.

From foodies to music enthusiasts; from families in search of free activities to thrill-seekers, there’s something for everyone this year.

The Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2023 invites everyone to usher in the new year together. It is presented by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA).

Light projection shows

Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2023 will present Share the Moment, a series of light projection shows on the facades of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and the Merlion, from 26 to 31 December in partnership with the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC) and

This year’s theme is called “City of Good” which features 14 never-before-seen original creations by students from 6 local educational institutions.

Catch the light projection shows from 8pm to 10.30pm from 26 to 30 December, and from 8pm to 11.45pm on New Year’s Eve (31 December). Shows run every 15 minutes. We watched these shows during Media Preview Night and they make the whole atmosphere simply magical.

Light installations at the Marina Bay waterfront promenade

Light installations will be on display from 19 to 31 December along the waterfront promenade adjacent to Marina Boulevard. Brightening Lives 2023 features light installations such as fairy light tunnels and trees festooned with meteor drip lights. They are so Instagram-worthy.
