What better way to celebrate Children’s Day than with a magic show?

If you’re spending time with the family this weekend, make your way down to The Grand Lawn for a communal Razzle Dazzle U Picnic. Expect LED discs, a laser light show and fun glow in the dark walks. There are tons of games to be play and prizes to be won. Hint: there’s a lookout for ‘Best Dressed Family’ so you might want to whip out those matching garbs. You can buy tickets here.

Seven years running, the biggest ice cream festival to grace Singapore is here once again. Chunkfest brings us 20 new Ben&Jerry’s flavours – but that’s not it. There will be musical accompaniment and interactive games lined up on 4 October, from 2-10 pm at The Meadows, Gardens by the Bay. Check out ‘Sundae School’ while you’re there.
