Get ready to ring in the New Year with a bang as we welcome the return of our dazzling bursts of fireworks display that will light up the night at Marina Bay, creating a symphony of reflection and hope that will leave you in awe.

Keep your eyes peeled for Brightening Lives, a display of original artworks created by students from local educational institutions, transformed into light projections on Marina Bay’s iconic facades – The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, the Merlion and the ArtScience Museum – from 26 to 31 December. This projection promises to be a beacon of hope and unity, embodying the spirit of commitment and collective responsibility to uplift and care for others.

Looking for an exhilarating way to spend your time this New Year? Look no further than TurboCharged, Marina Bay’s first go-karting circuit! From December 14 to 31 December 2023, this adrenaline-pumping experience is set to ignite the city’s excitement and bring the thrill of go-karting to the heart of the city at Bayfront Event Space.

More than just high-speed racing, there will also be a vibrant beer garden where you can unwind, relax and enjoy the food and view after the race.

Adding on to the excitement at Bayfront Event Space, Ice Magic: Winter Wonderland returns with a frosty revamp! As Asia’s largest touring pop-up winter playground, this enchanting event happening from 8 December 2023 to 21 January 2024 promises to be bigger and better than ever, with a taller and longer snow slope, a double lane ice slide and a new merry-go-round on ice.

Other events, both making much-anticipated returns, are the Mediacorp’s Let’s Celebrate 2024 countdown concert at The Promontory on 31 December, and the free music performances by up-and-coming bands at the outdoor theatre and indoor concourse of Esplanade Theatres on the Bay.
