Singapore’s Biggest Water Sports Fest by the Bay
DBS Marina Regatta 2016 returns with bold new experiences on- and off-water over two weekends on 28-29 May and 4-5 June. Singapore’s biggest water sports fest by the bay will once more see the region’s top dragon boating teams battle it out beneath the iconic Marina Bay skyline.
Singapore’s one and only urban pop-up beach also makes a big comeback, featuring Southeast Asia’s tallest inflatable water slide (over five storeys tall!) – for the first time. The beach comes with a packed programme of non-stop activities for families and urbanites alike. Board sports enthusiasts can try their hand at stand-up paddling and yoga sessions, while kids can explore the kayaking, zorbing, and obstacle courses.
DBS Marina Regatta 2016 will also bring together a collective of home-grown designers, musicians and chefs gather at Marina Bay over two amazing weekends.
Lovers of artisanal, handmade crafts will discover plenty of unique finds at the regatta’s artisan market, Shop House. Curated by art market specialists, The Local People, and housed in refitted shipping containers, Shop House will feature local designers such as accessories brand Supernacular and potter Oh Leaf. Or grab a bite at the food village Chow House, for mouth-watering meals by popular eateries Snag Shack, Fika, Kerbside Gourmet and more.
As the sun sets, climb up to the roofs of the shipping containers. They double as viewing decks at night, providing a perfect spot for music lovers to take in the evening’s beach concert. The regatta’s music showcase Sound House features a line up of emerging music artistes from Noise Singapore, with names such as local postacoustic trio HubbaBubbas, indie group Take Two, and singer-songwriter iNCH taking to the stage.
All this and much more to be found at the DBS Marina Regatta 2016. To find out more, visit www.dbsmarinaregatta.com; or follow us on our Facebook events page at go.dbs.com/dbsmr2016 and on Instagram (@dbsmarinaregatta).
