SINGAPORE: After two years of muted celebrations, the National Day Parade returned on a grand scale on Tuesday (Aug 9) evening at the Marina Bay floating platform - from crowd favourites like the Red Lions and F-16 fighter jets, to the marching contingents and a full-scale show segment with a cast of thousands.

Here are some of the highlights through the lens of our photographers, Jeremy Long and Try Sutrisno Foo.
