Singapore River Festival

Singapore River is one of the Singapore’s most prominent heritage spots. Every year it hosts a stunning festival with tons of fun events taking place across the river.  The majority of the events are free of charge. Local Singaporean love this festival. It’s one of the highlights of the calendar. Events include various music festivals, the spectacular aerial shows, themed parties, the famous romantic bumboat parade, and magic shows (in 2009, world-renowned Singaporean magician duo Magic Ning Babe and JC Sum set a Guinness World Record by performing 15 grand illusions in just 5 minutes!), all set across magnificent river views.
