This Neon-Lit Carnival Is The Party We’ve All Been Waiting For

Something big is happening next month and we can't wait.

High chance by now, you would have already visited the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival that occupies the 25,000 square metres of The Promontory and Bayfront event space (if you have yet to visit it, we highly recommend you check it out). But here's another reason why you should head back next month: Singapore's biggest carnival will be collaborating with urban lifestyle park GastroBeats from 9 March till 1 April, in conjunction with the i Light Marina Bay 2018.

GastroBeats, which debuted in i Light Marina Bay 2017, will be returning once again at the Promontory and present a neon playground for all food and music lovers to enjoy. Visitors can look forward to new activities such as LED-lit hula hoop stations, and glow-in-the-dark renditions of familiar games such as hopscotch, chess, tic-tac, jenga, floor pong, twister and paintball.

What else to expect: On three consecutive Sundays from 18 March 2018, it will partner up with social enterprise Terra SG to put a spotlight on sustainability with the Sustainability Sundays at Terra Village programme. The programme will gather a community of crafters, designers and other creatives to encourage public consciousness in caring for our environment by allowing visitors to shop for earth-friendly products and participate in eco-craft workshops.

For those who enjoy keeping fit, there will be a series of complimentary weekly mass workouts as part of the Fitness by the Bay programme, held in collaboration with Pure Fitness and Pure Yoga. There will also be local music bands including alternative rock band Cadence, indie-pop band M1ldlife and hip-hop collective Mediocre Haircut Crew that will take the stage from Friday to Sunday to add to the electrifying atmosphere. Getting fit at a carnival with some sick beats? We are sold.

At the end of the month on 31 March, it will host the annual Illumi Fest Run, where participants will be splashed with glow-in-the-dark water as they experience various activity zones that includes a giant Illumi slide and Illumi splash box.
