Toys, comics, Harry Potter and Sentosa’s birthday this weekend

Sentosa turns 40 this year, and you are invited for the party. Free entry for all, a flea market on the boardwalk, a fiesta carnival at the Merlion plaza, ice slides and playground on siloso beach and an international cast of street performers at the Buskers festival . Don’t miss this one of a kind celebration.

Dance on your mind?  Dance India showcases four of the best dancers of classical Indian dance forms performed for the first time in Asia Pacific after seven hugely successful years in the UK.

Fancy some of your own footwork?  The da:ns Festival 2012 has several workshops and classes to suit all ages and interestes, try Korean hip-hop, parkour or lockin’ and poppin’, but if being in the audience is more your style, don’t miss the festival’s evening of ballet, called ‘Aspects of Love’.

You have read the books and watched the movie, now listen to the music. Enjoy the magical compositions of John Williams and Nicholas Hooper as they create a world filled with witches, wizards, warlocks and muggles at the Concerts for Children: Symphonic Sorcery - The Music of Harry Potter .

Comics, anime, manga and toys at the Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention 2012 at Suntec this weekend, brought to you by non-other than the makers of the New York Comic Con (NYCC).

The Loewen Garden’s farmer’s market (held on the first Saturday of every month) is a treasure trove of exotic vegetables, outdoor eats, artisanal breads, cheese and a big celebration of food. (1 Sep,  75E Loewen Rd 248845)

Kids can create a yummy treat with materials from nature at the Edible Flower Cake in a Pot (A Floral Arrangement & Cup Cake Decoration Workshop).
