Marina Barrage’s 10th Anniversary Finale Bash

Marina Barrage hosted its biggest-ever carnival from 26 to 28 October — to mark the finale of its 10th Anniversary celebrations.

Guest-of-Honour, Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for National Security Teo Chee Hean, and Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Masagos Zulkifli also unveiled the Marina Barrage’s 10th Anniversary commemorative art piece at the finale celebrations on 27 October evening.



The three-day carnival saw a gathering of more than 100 stalls featuring arts and crafts, up-cycling activities, performances such as the LED water percussion, a sand art video show by artist Stacey Lee and a fireworks display. Visitors also enjoyed a specially-curated free boat cruise rides along the Marina waters, which brought them closer to water where they could learn more about Marina Barrage and the Marina Reservoir.





This grand finale culminates a year-long celebration, which saw the iconic venue hosted ten events and festivities, which include “Behind the Scene” exhibitions, tours for engineering students from five polytechnics, and flagship events such as Singapore Kite Day and RSAF50@Marina Barrage.
