For more than a decade, Singaporeans have rung in the year by filling Marina Bay with 25,000 inflatable “wishing spheres.” The glowing orbs are filled with wishes for the new year written by people from around the island. The installation is further illuminated by a New Year’s Eve fireworks display with custom composed music every year, attracting more than 300,000 revelers.
