It’s the last weekend of DBS Marina Regatta 2018 at The Promontory @ Marina Bay and, despite the turbulent weather over the past couple of weeks, the crowds have surely not let up!
While the annual dragon boat race, obstacle courses, and nautical activities are the first thing that comes to everyone’s mind, there are tons of other activities for every kind of festival goer. Here are 6 fun-filled, wholesome activities for everyone at DBS Marina Regatta 2018: Blaze the Bay!
The Fitness Warrior
This year’s edition of DBS Marina Regatta brings not one, but three levels of obstacle courses for the ultimate fitness warrior to test their strength: Initiate, Intense, and Insane. Dubbed Battle Bay Extreme, these levels combine dexterity and endurance, from rope swings, to mud crawls, and even an inflatable water obstacle course.
Powered by Under Armour, Battle Bay Extreme is Southeast Asia’s largest land and water obstacle course. Online registration is closed, but you can still sign up onsite!
No festival is complete without… food! This year, DBS has partnered with Mahota, an organic supermarket cum wellness brand and one of DBS TwentyThirty’s partner merchants, to bring healthy, yet delicious treats from poké bowls to Japanese snacks.
You can also try your hand at making açai bowls, latte art, or snack bars from Bettr Baritsta, Poppy & Co, and Mahota at the Creators Market. Workshops are held hourly, at $20 each!
The I’m Gonna Get Lucky
Pssst, DBS is giving out prizes to the dedicated few who complete 5 activities around DBS Marina Regatta and Artbox. Pick up a Bay Passport and complete any 5 tasks listed to stand a chance to win a Porsche Design HUAWEI Mate 10, or Scoot tickets to Berlin and Maldives! It’s that easy, and a great reason to explore what DBS Marina Regatta has to offer.
Who thought a fitness and foot event at Marina Bay would also include tech demos and hands-on experiences?!
Unleash your photography talent at the HUAWEI P20 Pro Camera Challenge, experience epic sounds by JBL, or complete a trip on a PopScoot e-scooter; all three are listed activities on the Bay Passport.
The Social Enterprise Supporter
Indulge in guilt-free and socially conscious shopping from over 20 social enterprises from across the region over at Artbox! Supported by the DBS Foundation, these businesses include teas, bespoke jewellery, handcrafts, fashion, and more.
Spend $5 at any of these stalls to get a stamp on your Bay Passport.
The Musically Inclined
Organised in partnership with Bandwagon, Busking by the Bay gathers close to 20 music, juggling, and pyro acts to serenade and entertain as you traverse between DBS Marina Regatta and Artbox. You can also show your support the cashless way – using DBS PayLah!
