Festivals, bazaars, and workshops in March
iLight has just kicked off this week, which means that most of us would be heading down to view their much-anticipated light installations. But if you’re still on the lookout for more things to add to your schedule, here’s a list of other fun-filled events all lined-up – there are festivals, bazaars, a pool party, and even a satirical theatrical dining experience!
1. MAKEPLAY & LASTPLAY
Currently in its 5th season, PRESSPLAY is an annual arts festival for youths. Soak in the nostalgia and reminisce your childhood with this year’s theme – REWIND! – that’s 80s and 90s-inspired, and consists of 2 parts – MAKEPLAY and LASTPLAY.
Try your hand at a variety of craft workshops at MAKEPLAY, which includes film photography, embroidery, soy candle making, and pottery. Then, join in the fun at LASTPLAY, the finale party with live performances, DIY booths for old-school trinkets like Hama Beads and Friendship Bracelets, and food and drink pop-up stalls by The Travelling C.O.W!

Here’s the real highlight of the playground though – the BBB (Bubbly Bear Bath), which is a humongous ball pit with over 150,000 balls and lots of other smaller inflatables inside, making it perfect for a ball pit fight!
