The Prudential Marina Bay Carnival sure was fun, wasn’t it?
For four months, pretty much the entire Marina Bay area was transformed into neon-lit wonderland, acting as a simultaneous haven for foodies, Instagrammers and plush toy enthusiasts alike.
And if you’re experiencing withdrawal symptoms or for some reason missed it the first time round, don’t worry — you only have to wait seven weeks before you can revel in its fun again.
Just In Time For Christmas
That’s right — the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival will be returning to the Bayfront Event Space on the 22nd of December, and will run for three months till the 24th of March 2019.
Like its predecessor, admission is completely free, and it’ll run from 4pm – 11pm every single day. Operating hours will also be extended to 2am on both Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, so if you’ve ever wanted to usher in the new year 55 metres in the air, here’s your chance.
Not much else has been revealed at the moment, but their website does mention that they’ll be bringing in more carnival rides from Europe.
Apart from that, it looks like the carnival will be sticking to the tried-and-true formula of hipster food stalls and deceptively simple carnival games that’ll challenge your boyfriend’s masculinity.
The best part is that this is just one part of a bigger series called Celebrate In The City, an initiative by the Urban Redevelopment Authority that’ll see events running all the way till the end of the year.
We’ll keep you updated on the carnival and everything else as more information comes in, so watch this space…and mentally prepare yourself for the inevitable crowds and queues too.
