Better view of performances for audience at NDP 2013

National Day Parade (NDP) rehearsal at the Marina Bay Floating Platform on July 20, 2013. Those attending this year's NDP will get a better view of performances with the stage being moved closer to them.

At this year's parade, the stage will extended into the promenade and will be 8m closer to the audience. This is to make the parade more "engaging, and in a way, interactive" for the audience, said Military Expert 7 Chow Wai Yein, who is the chairman for infrastructure and decoration at NDP 2013. Performers will also have more usable space, he added.
