Back for its eighth edition with a mission to educate Singaporeans on sustainability issues, this year’s DBS Marina Regatta features a 23,000 sq ft maze made of recycled material. Participants will only have 12 minutes to test their fitness skills and knowledge on environmental issues while overcoming physical obstacles within the maze. After that, treat yourself to a smorgasbord of food dished out by second-generation hawkers, from carrot cakes to fresh seafood to halal kebabs. Finally, unwind to the sweet and melodic voices of more than 20 young buskers, who will be performing around the bay. Admission is free and more information can be obtained via their website.
