The Singapore Sports Hub welcomed more than 23,000 visitors at its third edition of the Sports Hub National Day Fiesta, in celebration of the nation’s 54th birthday.
This year’s event paid homage to Singapore heritage, through family-friendly sporting activities and festivities that showcased elements of Singaporean culture. From as early as 7:30 AM to 10 AM in the morning, a closed-door Bicentennial edition of the Red-X Challenge session was conducted at the OCBC Square for participants with special needs. From 10 AM onwards, the activity was opened to members of the public.
The momentum continued into the afternoon with synchronised fist-pumping and footwork during the Sports Hub Workout Lah!, a cardio-fusion dance programme.
Families streamed in by mid-day and children gravitated to the colourful, multi-station OHANA Games, an activity inspired by Singapore’s history and makan culture, among others.
Throughout the day, visitors enjoyed a suite of family-friendly activities which included a number of stage performances and games, face painting, balloon sculpting, family bonding games, craft workshops, a local bazaar and free snacks.
In the evening, an air of patriotism filled the Singapore Sports Hub grounds as visitors sang along to the National Day songs while enjoying the dual-screen live telecast of the National Day Parade at the OCBC Square and along the Stadium Riverside Walk. Visitors also caught the dazzling fireworks from the Padang celebration along the waterfront.
