The highly anticipated annual Christmas event at Gardens by the Bay returns with its first ever outdoor skating rink and highly acclaimed circus acts from Ethiopia. Organised by Blue Sky Events and supported by the Singapore Tourism Board, Christmas Wonderland runs from 1 to 26 December, from 4pm to 11pm daily. For the first time, visitors to Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay can skate under the stars at the 240 sq m outdoor skating rink.
A light and sound show, “Garden Rhapsody”, will be shown nightly at the Supertree Grove during the Mid-Autumn Festival. The Mid-Autumn Festival at Gardens by the Bay will return again this year, and visitors will be treated to the largest lantern display ever created by the Gardens. Other lantern displays to look out for include “Grains of Gold”, a paddy field illuminated with 4,000 glowing rice stalks, and “Splendour of Blooms”, which features 250 water lily lanterns floating on the lake.
The filming of “Crazy Rich Asians” saw not one, but three road closures for their shoot on 11, 14, and 17 June. The cast also endured a midnight shoot at Gardens by the Bay over 22 to 23 June, although thankfully, no roads were closed for those scenes. Which raises the question: How exactly does one go about closing roads for a shoot in Singapore?
Things to do, films to see and top events to check out for the weekend of 22 to 24 July in Singapore.
