Another National Day might have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean that the celebrations have to stop.

If you’re not ready to put away your red t-shirts and remove Home from your Spotify playlist just yet, here are some events that’ll help you scratch that patriotic itch over the weekend:

Independent Market National Day Fair 2018

Have the recent festivities spurred you to fill your home and / or wardrobe with locally-inspired merchandise? Then Independent Market’s National Day Fair is definitely the place to be.

Featuring wares from an assortment of homegrown brands, you’ll find everything from notebooks to cushion covers — all of which feature local icons such as the Merlion, chilli crab and the famous Toa Payoh dragon playground, to name a few.

This is one of the rare occasions that so many local brands will be in one place at the same time, so you best head down unless you’re cool with scouring the island to find them again.

Independent Market National Day Fair 2018
Venue: VivoCity Southeast Boulevard
Date: 10th-13th Aug 2018
Time: 10am-10pm
Admission: Free

If you’re looking for a place to just sit back and relax, head on over to the Supertrees at Gardens By The Bay, where there’ll be a special National Day edition of the Garden Rhapsody light and sound show.

The light show’s hypnotic visuals should be reason enough to head down, but the real attraction is the star-studded group of Benjamin Kheng, Nathan Hartono, Rani Singam and iNCH, who will be performing a collection of local tunes to keep you in the National Day mood.

Some of Singapore’s best musicians performing some of Singapore’s best songs at one of Singapore’s most iconic landmarks…for free? Yeah, there really isn’t any reason for you not to go.

Garden Rhapsody: Singapore Edition
Venue: Gardens By The Bay, Supertree Grove
Date: 10th-12th Aug 2018

Admission: Free

Films At The Fort

Okay, this one isn’t exactly National Day themed, but paying a little too much for a hipster experience has become so commonplace in Singapore that it could be considered a national pastime.

At $30 a ticket, Films At The Fort isn’t exactly the cheapest date idea, but you’ll be hard pressed to find another event that allows you to watch a classic movie in an open-air setting under the stars. It’s a unique concept for sure, and one you should experience at least once in your life.

Romance Classic The Notebook and sex comedy Blockers will be screening on Saturday and Sunday respectively, so there’s something for everyone. The organisers are also expecting “a strong demand for tickets”, so be sure to get yours quick.

Films At The Fort
Venue: Fort Canning Park
Date: 11th August 2018 (The Notebook), 12th Aug 2018 (Blockers)
Time: 7:30pm
Admission: $29.80
