No four seasons in Singapore but from the looks of the events happening this weekend, it’s safe to say it’s summer time! Think dragon boating, yoga in the sun, and smokin’ BBQ parties—just remember to arm yourself with lots of SPF, breezy-bright ensembles and a good make-up setting spray!
DBS Marina Regatta
1-4 June at The Promontory at Marina Bay
Grab your beach day’s best and head on down to The Promontory at Marina Bay for Singapore’s biggest Bayfest: The DBS Marina Regatta. Beyond the dragon boating competition with almost 80 participating teams, there will an Urban Beach to sun bathe on; a Battle Bay obstacle course to put your physicality to the test; Bay Eats, a breezy food festival; and a Marina Regatta x Ultra Countdown Party helmed by some of the region’s best emerging DJs.
Salute the Sun with lululemon
3 June at The Promontory
You don’t need to be a dragon boat fan to attend the DBS Marina Regatta—fitness enthusiasts will be treated to sweat sessions by lululemon at the Play Dome and Urban Beach, from a more high-intensity Eat Train Love workout to a revitalising, chakra-aligning Yoga+ class in the sun.
Gillman Barracks Art & History Tour
3 June at Gillman Barracks
Gain a deeper understanding of the artistic space that is Gillman Barracks with a walking tour on Saturday. Discover artworks by established and emerging local and international artists on show, whilst you get an introduction to the history of the colonial estate.
After Dawn BBQ Block Party at Camp Kilo
4 June at Camp Kilo
Bring your appetite over to Camp Kilo at Kampong Bugis, where an artist market by The Local People; craft workshops by FMS Fashion Markerspace; DJ-led al fresco parties; and succulent, saucy barbecued meats await. It’s going to be sweaty, so hold back on the heavy make-up and wear something breezy.
On Sharks and Humanity
Till 26 June at Parkview Museum
harnesses the power of art to educate and empower the public on the environmental issues surrounding shark protection and ocean conservation. The multi-media travelling exhibition features close to 30 artworks from all over the world, each portraying a different aspect of the interdependence between sharks, the ocean and mankind; as well as a heartfelt side to the creature that is both deeply feared and love.
