Thread: Happenings around Marina Bay

  1. #1

    Default Happenings around Marina Bay

    Singapore's Marina Bay, other than it's beautiful views, is also a host to various activities, from the National Day Parade, to various sports and arts activities. So I'm starting this thread to share some of the shots I took when I happened to be around with a camera.

    First up is 'i Light Marina Bay' happening now, from 3-26th March 2017 (https://www.ilightmarinabay.sg/)
    Showing a shot of each of the installations around the area first:

    National Day Parade Rehearsals have started, with the Combined Rehearsals 1 happening last Saturday 24th June. Went to catch some outdoor action as this year it's back to Float @ Marina Bay, also sharing the timings though they will be subject to change as they get more accurate nearer to the actual day. Just use the timings as a rough ballpark for when to get ready.
