Still planning what to do for the upcoming weekends?
There’s something happening almost every single week at Marina Bay. One of the biggest event of the year is DBS Marina Regatta, Singapore’s Biggest BayFest. The sixth edition of DBS Marina Regatta (DBSMR) returns with high-octane thrills and spills on both land and water. And it would be my first time taking part in all the festivities at DBS Marina Regatta. From 1 to 4 June 2017, the sporting event will be packed with numerous activities for outdoor enthusiasts, fitness lovers and partygoers alike from day to night. All are welcomed to watch the region’s top dragon boating competition as the teams battle it out against the iconic Marina Bay skyline for Asia’s highest prize purse of SGD 134,000.
There would also be a debut of Singapore’s largest giant inflatable water obstacle course and Singapore’s largest interactive art dome, adding that element of fun to this Regatta.
