Instead, look forward to a New Year’s Eve night of booze-soaked merry-making, rollickin’ good fun, and fireworks – definitely the fireworks, especially since there’ll be a minute-long dazzling shower of light every hour from 8.05PM at the Marina Bay and Civic District area. With that, let’s raise our glasses to 2018!
