iLight Marina Bay 2016
Twinkly lights and pretty art installations? Yes please. Starting tomorrow, get ready to watch our humble Marina Bay waterfront transform into a glittering ensemble of light art installations, featuring 25 of the best works from emerging local and international artists. And even if you tire of being quite literally dazzled by the installations (really, though?), there are tons of other activities held in conjunction – an old-school Uncle Ringo carnival, a waterfront bazaar, musical performance, and a first ever Festival Village. It’s a treat for all ages, and best of all – it’s completely free.
Date: 4 March to 27 March 2016
Time: 7.30pm to 11pm (extended to 12mn on Fri & Sat)
Venue: Marina Bay Waterfront
