Singapore celebrated its fiftieth birthday Saturday. The tiny nation became an independent country August 8th, 1965. The climax the celebrations was the largest fireworks display ever seen Singapore. Tens thousands of people gathered the streets to celebrate. The country has been counting down this anniversary since New Year's Eve. There have been hundreds events to mark the fifty years since independence. Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong gave a special National Day message the nation. He said that Singapore could look forward to "new peaks" ahead. He added that: "The journey ahead is uncharted. But we must press , because we aspire to do better ourselves and our children."
