As the year draws to a close, you can expect one thing: fireworks. Since the COVID-19 rules in Singapore do not seem as strict as before, that means things are going back to normal right?
Well, not really, for this new year’s eve, there are no fireworks in Marina Bay again.
No Fireworks in Marina Bay This New Year’s Eve But There Will be Fireworks in Heartland Locations
For the second year in a row, there will be no fireworks at Marina Bay once since the event began in 2005.
This is to minimise crowds and to prevent the spread of COVID-19. At least that means the trains from Marina Bay are would not be packed after midnight.
Instead of having fireworks at the most expensive area in Singapore, there will be fireworks at selected heartland locations.
Fireworks in Heartland Locations
There’s no official information on which heartland locations the fireworks will take place this year, so it might or might not be similar to last year’s heartland locations:
- Boon Lay
- Nanyang ward in West Coast GRC
- Tiong Bahru
- Yew Tee
On the other hand, if you want a 100% confirm-fireworks-will-take-place-here kind of information, wait for the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) to release more information in due time.

Marina Bay Light Shows
Since Marina Bay will not be featuring the fireworks display on the coming New Year’s Eve, does that mean you should stay at home and stare at the ceiling? Yes and no.
Yes as you will be able to watch the Mediacorp’s Let’s Celebrate 2022 annual countdown special online or on the television if you still have one of those things.
The countdown special will also display selected heartland fireworks and scenes from Marina Bay.
Whereas for those who have already booked a staycation at Marina Bay Sands or will be in the area, you can still enjoy the special Marina Bay’s light shows.
Shine a Light
Debuted last year, Shine a Light will return with 60 light beams in a circular formation. It will be projected from The Promontory from 1 Dec to 31 Dec.
This light display was created to represent strength and to “shine the light” on frontline workers, ground-up groups and charities meeting the needs within our community.
This display will have a different colour to spotlight the different cause weekly. From 29 to 31 Dec, the display will light up in magenta to represent the harmonious spirit of Singapore Together.
Share the Moment
Aside from Shine a Light, there’s also a light projection show called Share the Moment. Unlike the 60 beams, Share the Moment will project a series of light projection shows on the walls of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, the ArtScience Museum and the Merlion.
These projections will feature original artworks by local students and they will be presented nightly from 26 Dec to 31 Dec.
