SINGAPORE – With six days to go till the opening ceremony of the 28th SEA Games here, the Singapore Southeast Asian Games Organising Committee (SINGSOC) has unveiled another opportunity for the community to feel excited and be involved in the Games – the 28th SEA Games Carnival.
Themed around the SEA Games mascot, Nila, the carnival promises a June holidays like no other.
The carnival is on from Sunday (May 31) to June 16 and runs from 10am to 9pm daily, except on June 5, when it closes at 5pm, June 7 when it opens at 9am and June 16 when it closes at 5pm.
Held at the Singapore Sports Hub, carnival-goers will get to pit their wits and skills in a variety of sports and games, but with an interesting twist, such as the 300-degree table tennis table, hockey-golf, pool-soccer, the gravity defying ‘Walk-On-Water” and the first ever laser-tag battles at the Sports Hub.
SINGSOC Community Engagement & Merchandising head, Lee Huei Chern said with the Games happening during the June School Holidays, the city-state wanted everyone to not only have fun but also be inspired by the fighting spirit of the athletes.
Beyond the different activity stations, the carnival will also provide visitors with a chance to sit back and listen to local artistes who include Daphne Khoo, Tabitha Nauser, The Sam Willows, Tay Kewei and Charlie Lim.
