Singapore River Festival 2018
Tue Oct 16 @ 8:00 am - Sun Nov 11 @ 5:00 pm
This October and November, mark your calendars and gear up for Singapore River Festival 2018! As part of the ongoing e-payment initiative, EZ-Link and NTUC Link are teaming up with organiser Singapore River One to bring yet another round of exciting events and activities across the three quays – Boat Quay, Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay.
In its fourth year, the Singapore River Festival is an annual event that celebrates the heritage, people and places that make up the river. With the theme “Your River, Your Vibe”, the festival will return bigger and better:
- LAH Bazaar – Across Boat Quay, Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay
The festival will kick off with LAH Bazaar (‘Local at Heart’ Bazaar), a month-long riverside marketplace selling all things uniquely Singaporean between 16 October 2018 to 11 November 2018. With payment powered by EZ-Link, this will also be the first ever cashless marketplace in Singapore. Festival-goers can also look forward to exclusive festival promotions via NTUC Link’s Plus! App. EZ-Link card holders can also earn LinkPoints when making purchases at the Bazaar. This is part of the nation’s e-payment drive, where users earn a reward for making an e-payment.
Amping up the fun, other highlights of the festival will also span across two weekends this year: 26 to 27 October 2018 and 2 to 3 November 2018:
- Sky Aquarium @ Boat Quay
Back by popular demand after its debut at Singapore River Festival 2017 is the synchronised LED Kite display by local start-up, GoFlykite. Taking on a marine theme this year, Sky Aquarium will be a display some of their largest LED kites, lights and lasers as it illuminates the river skyline once again.
- AR Challenge @ Clarke Quay
Take a step into the future with Singapore River Festival! The fountain square at Clarke Quay will transform into a digital arena as the festival becomes the host of the Hado Singapore Augmented Reality (AR) tournament. Rally your teammates and have some competitive fun with a digital dodgeball throw down.
- SR Gameshow @ Robertson Walk
Put your general knowledge to good use at the SR Gameshow, a trivia game show styled event that will challenge your wits. Held in partnership with live streaming platform BeLive, the gameshow will offer cash prizes and other attractive goodies!
