SINGAPORE : The first-ever Singapore Day will be held in New York's Bryant Park to update overseas Singaporeans on the developments back home.

It will be held on April 21.

The day-long event is expected to attract over 1,000 Singaporeans living in and around New York.

The event will enable overseas Singaporeans to meet fellow citizens and enjoy Singapore food and entertainment.

A Connect Contest will also be launched to get Singaporeans around the world to interact with one another and invite them to Singapore Day.

The three-week long contest, from February 15 to March 5, will be open to those above 18 years old.

Two winners will be picked and each will receive a pair of round-trip air tickets on Singapore Airlines. - CNA/ms
