March holidays is a perfect time to take a short break from studies and chill before the school starts again. It’s a period which is always such a refreshing change for parents and kids. Singapore Festival of Fun is happening at the RIGHT time!
The inaugural Singapore Festival of Fun at Clarke Quay is set to thrill the public with three pillars of entertainment during the March school holidays from 11th to 19th of March 2017. Comprising of the Nickelodeon Fiesta in collaboration with Nickelodeon, Clarke Quay StreetFest and the return of the Magners International Comedy Festival Singapore, a week-long programme of all-ages fun, entertainment and activities await everyone.
Nickelodeon Fiesta: 11 – 12 March 2017
Kicking off Singapore Festival of Fun, is the Southeast Asia debut of a two-day Nickelodeon Fiesta weekend. Inspired by Clarke Quay’s rich Singapore history, the free-entry event will see Clarke Quay transform into a carnival-like playground. Kids and their families can participate in a thematic family scavenger hunt around Clarke Quay with built-in historical and edutainment elements that will bring stories of Singapore River to life for participants. In line with the festivities, the carnival will feature reimagined nostalgic local childhood games with a Nickelodeon twist and limited edition Nickelodeon collectibles to be won. Not to be missed are stage games and meet-and-greet sessions with family favourite characters like SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick Star, Leonardo and Donatello from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Chase and Marshall from one of the hottest preschool shows, PAW Patrol.
Clarke Quay StreetFest 14 – 19 March 2017
The first Clarke Quay StreetFest follows Nickelodeon Fiesta, which will feature one of the world’s most famous clowns – Pepe the Clown, who will captivate and entertain the crowd with his inimitable style of tomfoolery. On Wednesday 15 March 2017, he will be joined by World Champion Unicyclist Jamey Mossengren who will perform daring and death-defying tricks while involving the audience such as leaping over a volunteer on his 12-foot high unicycle – the world’s tallest unicycle act whilst juggling a sword, a club and a torch. Not to be outdone, don’t miss the chance to watch The Kamikaze Fireflies comprising Rob Williams and Casey Martin who received a standing ovation when they performed on America’s Got Talent, in action. Live entertainment at its very best, The Kamikaze Fireflies combines circus and comedy in an exhilarating 40-minute show involving juggling, whip-cracking, German wheel and more. The fun at Clarke Quay StreetFest continues with Bruce Airhead – a unique street theatre comedy show featuring the metamorphosis of a man and a six-foot balloon in a surreal, fast-paced and insane performance involving an inflatable balloon.
Return of the 4th edition Magners International Comedy Festival Singapore 16-19 March
