Final weekend to catch SEA’s tallest inflatable water slide
For those who missed out on the first weekend of the DBS Marina Regatta 2016, which saw some 10,000 people enjoy non-stop activities from dawn to dusk at the Bay; be sure to catch the regatta’s final weekend on 4-5 June. Admission is free for all
Unmissable experiences await this weekend both on- and off-water at Singapore’s biggest water sports fest by the bay. Southeast Asia’s tallest inflatable water slide raised more than SGD 15,000 over two days and saw some 8,000 plunges being taken at the slide. Join in the fun this weekend for a small fee of SGD 10 for five slides. (check out the POV video of the slide) All proceeds go towards SPD, a non-profit organisation that helps people with disabilities develop their potential to the fullest so that they can be self-reliant
Singapore’s one and only pop-up urban beach continues to play host to families and urbanites alike, hosting activities such as yoga, board sports, zorbing and kayaking. Complete with beach bar and hammocks, event-goers also have the option of simply lounging at the beach with a refreshing beverage in hand while taking in the iconic sights of the Marina Bay.
DBS Marina Regatta 2016 also features the largest collective of home-grown designers, musicians and restaurateurs to ever gather at the Bay. Lovers of artisanal, handmade crafts will discover plenty of unique finds at the regatta’s artisan market, Shop House. Curated by art market specialists, The Local People, and housed in refitted shipping containers, Shop House features local designers such as accessories brand Supernacular and potter Oh Leaf. Grab a bite at the food village – Chow House – for mouth-watering meals by popular eateries Snag Shack, Fika, Kerbside Gourmet and more.
As the sun sets, climb up to the roofs of the shipping containers which double as viewing decks, for an unparalleled view to take in the beach concert. The regatta’s music showcase Sound House will feature emerging music artistes from Noise Singapore as the regatta wraps up, with names such as indie group Take Two, The MadHatter Project and Joie Tan.
