What To Do This Weekend (3 to 5 May 2024)

Ready for the weekend? Here's what you can look forward to this week.

1. Tulipmania

Tulipmania returns to Gardens by the Bay for its 10th edition with a display that pays homage to its first run back in 2013.

Evoking the charm of iconic tulip farms in the Netherlands, where tulips are uniformly planted in rows of singular colour, this year’s floral display presents a blend of tradition and modernity, with quintessential elements of the traditional Dutch landscape such as the windmill and watermill juxtaposed against modern features that showcase technological advancements in urban farming and clean energy.

In celebration of the floral display's 10th anniversary, you can get a free single-stalk tulip when visiting the Flower Dome on 4 and 5 May (this Saturday and Sunday).

4. Borealis: A new immersive light and sound experience


Step into a magical experience with Borealis, a new immersive light and sound installation that's arriving in Singapore for the first time.

Created by Switzerland-based artist Dan Acher, this outdoor art installation combines layers of light and cloud particles to recreate the magical splendour of the Northern Lights (also known as aurora borealis) and illuminate the night skies of Gradens by the Bay's Supertree Grove.

Accompanied by an atmospheric soundtrack by French composer Guillaume Desbois, variations in wind, humidity and temperature make this installation a fascinating blend of art and technology, as well as an ever-changing experience where each encounter is unique and nature holds the final say.
