SINGAPORE - From the Red Lions' jump into the heartland in the morning to the evening's dazzling fireworks display, stay close to the action this National Day with The Straits Times' live coverage on Sunday (Aug 9).
This year's celebrations will be different from those in the past, with Covid-19 restrictions resulting in a slew of decentralised events across the island taking place at different times throughout the day.
Get all the latest happenings on our special live blog from 8.30am, as Singapore kicks off its 55th birthday celebrations with NDP favourites, including the Red Lions, and a morning parade segment.
Follow real-time updates, including behind-the-scenes photos and videos, from the ST team on the ground at the Padang and various heartland locations.
ST's multimedia journalists will take you close to the festivities islandwide and will also join a Singaporean family for a special NDP watch party at home.
Readers are also invited to share your best photos of the NDP heartland celebrations on your Instagram accounts and add the hashtag #stheartlandndp for a chance to be featured on ST. Tell us what do you love about Singapore in the caption and remember to make your profile public.
These photos will be displayed in a special interactive graphic.
