As we approach the end of 2019, the Marina Bay and the Civic District are set to come alive with dazzling light shows and exciting activities for the entire family in preparation for the new year! 

From December 26, the facade of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore will light up with artwork created by the beneficiaries from Beyond Social Services and SHINE Children and Youth Services. Journey through various whimsical worlds, and explore a starry universe, underwater seascape and even a candy factory! 

The nightly light projections will be played between 8.00pm and 10.30pm from December 26-30, and between 8.00pm and 11.30pm on New Year’s Eve.

Now in its 15th edition, the festive carnival is presented by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA). Whether you are a foodie, a music enthusiast, an animal lover or a thrill seeker, the Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2020 hass something for everyone!

Besides the Fullerton Hotel, ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands and the Merlion will also be adorned with light projections adapted from some 50 artworks by over 40 individuals from four social service organisations. This is part of the Build a Dream initiative by Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2020 in partnership with the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC).

From December 29, the facades of the Merlion and ArtScience Museum will come alive with a kaleidoscope of dancing colours. The light projection on the façade of the Merlion will showcase artworks co-created by the elderly patients and volunteers of the Yishun Community Hospital. Meanwhile, over at the ArtScience Museum, beneficiaries of the Dyslexia Association of Singapore will share how people with dyslexia relate to the world, and their hope to create an even more inclusive society.
