Ushering in the New Year with countdown parties across the island

New Year Celebrations

Singapore ushered in the New Year on Thursday (Jan 1) today with various countdown parties across the island. This year’s countdown was particularly special for the nation, as it kicked off celebrations marking the country’s 50th year of independence.

A crowd of some 25,000 revellers were at the Marina Bay Floating Platform, where they were treated to a star-studded seven-hour extravaganza. It was a special celebration not just to welcome in the New Year, but also to mark Singapore’s golden jubilee.
