Balloon Extravaganza at Marina Square March Holiday 2023

Be transported to a sunny paradise from the 11th to 19th of March 2023 as Marina Square Shopping Mall’s iconic balloon exhibition bounces back with a bang at the mall’s Central Atrium after a 3-year hiatus. The much anticipated, signature event is held annually during the March school holidays!

Balloons at Marina Square March Holiday

Visitors will be amazed as the 6,500 square foot central atrium is transformed into a Hawaiian-themed beachscape, bringing holiday joy to visitors through majestic balloon sculptures. Featuring the works of 46 talented balloon artists hailing from Singapore, China, Spain, Malaysia, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Indonesia, 180,150 balloons made from 100% all natural latex and completely bio-degradable, will be sculpted over the span of 4 days to create a whole new dimension. The final touch of the beachscape will include balloon sculptures made by beneficiaries from the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (STSPMF) and is set to be awarded “The Largest Number of Balloons used in a Display” by the Singapore Book of Records!

At the same time, a portion of the proceeds from the event’s balloon sales will go STSPMF. The mall’s owner Singapore Land Group Limited (SingLand) has also pledged $60,000 in support of the cause, as part of its corporate initiative SingLand Elevates and in celebration of the Group turning 60 this year.

Ms Chan Yien Mei, General Manager for Marina Square said, “This March school holidays, we have curated a mix of experiential activities at Marina Square guaranteed to delight and excite both young and old. At the same time, we remain committed to building inclusive communities. We hope to bring joy to more families with our donation to the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund.”
