Time to celebrate the American spirit in Singapore – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – all at the American Association of Singapore’s annual Independence Day Celebration in partnership with Singapore American School! This exciting family event will be held on Saturday, June 29, 2013 from 4pm to 10pm at Singapore American School. It features a full day of fun, music, food, drinks, kid’s games, sports and patriotism, capped off by formal ceremonies and a spectacular fireworks display.
This event is completely not-for-profit, and as such, depends 100% on the support of the community. AAS has never charged an admission fee for the Independence Day Celebration, as we feel it is our duty to bring a wide range of people from all walks of life together to celebrate in true American style.
