5 Things To Do In June 2017

1. DBS Marina Regatta

The DBS Marina Regatta returns to Marina Bay this year, with more adrenaline-packed action and festival fun. Besides a heart-racing dragon boat race with close to 80 local and international teams vying for the top spot, the event also promises an exciting slate of sideline activities for all.

For those who want to burn some extra calories, sign up for the one-of-a-kind water obstacle course at the Battle Bay, or break a sweat at the many yoga and fitness sessions available during the event. Those who just want to chill can look forward to an urban beach with hammocks, cocktails and a special pop-up of Potato Head’s legendary Coconut Bar. Don’t forget to stick around after sundown for a dance party (against the stunning Marina Bay skyline, no less), as the line-up of DJs get you revved up for Ultra Singapore (happening the next weekend on 10 and 11 June).

Dates: 1 to 4 June 2017
Time: Varies based on activity. See here for more details.
Location: The Promontory at Marina Bay
Admission: Certain events are ticketed and may have age restrictions. See here for more details.

2. Aviva SuperFunDae 2017

Schedule a date with your family at Aviva SuperFunDae 2017, where you can let loose and have fun at one of the biggest outdoor festivals for families.

Once you’re tired out from all the fun and games, you can sit back and relax at the outdoor movie screening, or put your skills to the test at the various art workshops. We hear that there will also be free ice cream for all during the event, so do you really need another reason to head down there?
