June Holidays Are Here: 3 Month Long Events For People Of All Ages

The June holidays are here and it’s time to plan fun activities with family and friends. There are three events not to be missed happening throughout the month of June.

1) GastroBeats

GastroBeats is a festival that will be held from 3 to 26 June at the Bayfront Event Space. It is divided into Gastro, Beats and Play.

There are two main sections under “Gastro”, featuring Local Streets and Culinary Masters. Local Streets features over 20 vendors. Some favourites include Haig Road putu piring, Praffles, Big Boy Franks and Asap & co.

Culinary Masters by Sarah Todd features collaborative dishes whipped up by Masterchef contestants Sarah Todd (Australia), Derek Cheong and Genevieve Lee from Singapore and Masterchef Australia’s judge, George Calambaris.

‘Beats’ features roving musicians and stage shows throughout the festival. Artists like Daniel Sid, Stand Two and Litmus Jazz Ensemble will be performing. There are different dates for the artists performing so be sure to check the website for them.

2) i Light Singapore 2022

After the last show in 2019 which commemorated the Singapore Bicentennial, i Light is returning to Marina Bay from 3 to 26 June. This year’s show will feature stunning installations using energy saving lighting and environmentally friendly materials.

The lights are scheduled to go on at 7.30 pm daily and these are some of the installations to catch.

Bondfire can be found at Esplanade Park. The glowing columns mimic the intimate setting of a bonfire where bonds are made. The idea is to allow people to explore the spaces in between and create a bonding experience together.

Light Canvas can be found in front of the Red Dot Museum. It is an interactive installation where one can do light drawings using their phone flashlight.

Alone Together can be found at Marina Bay Link mall entrance. It is an interactive projection by Ping Lim and Ian Grossberg that captures the experience of living in isolation during the pandemic.

General admission to the i Light festival is free however some attractions are ticketed separately and tickets start from $6 per adult. There are guided tours as well for those interested and more details on ticketing can be found here.

3) Jewel-rassic Quest

For those who love dinosaurs, there are activities for them too.

Jewel-rassic quest is an augmented reality experience with dinosaurs for those aged 6 and above. Armed with a ‘TimeLens’, participants will be transported back into the Cretaceous period to meet dinosaurs augmented against the greenery of the forest valley and canopy park at Jewel Airport. They can complete missions and activities while learning about the animals that lived in the prehistoric ages. 

Standard tickets are priced at $18 for Singapore residents and $20 for non residents. More details can be found here.

If augmented reality isn’t your thing, there are other dino-themed activities across the country during the June holidays. Cheekiemonkies Facebook page curated a number of activities in a post.

Jurassic June at Singapore Discovery Centre is one of the notable events. There are both free and ticketed events held throughout the month of June.

Dino eco-hunt is a free event where fun facts about extinct dinosaurs can be ‘hunted’ down with SingaPaw and learn about protecting the environment we’re living in now.

A list of other activities and details can be found here.

With the easing of restrictions, it’s time to go out and have fun during the holidays. If an overseas trip is not within reach, there are plenty of things to do locally as well!
