5 Things You Shouldn't Miss at the Children's Festival

After watching Disney on Ice, Magic Ice Festival at the Singapore Indoor Stadium last Saturday, we went straight ahead at Gardens by the Bay to catch the opening of this year's Children's Festival. Purposely scheduled this March school holidays, here are 5 things you and your kids shouldn't miss at the Gardens of Wonder:

1) Rainbows in the Water - Garden of Magical Creatures (Children's Garden)
I've mentioned before that no visit to Gardens by the Bay is complete without G spending an hour or two playing at the water playground. In our countless visits, never once did we foresee that one day we will catch a water play performance right then and there! 

Rainbows in the Water is a beautiful musical dance performance inspired by the classic tale, The Rainbow Fish, a story about selflessness, friendship and love. The show was held at the central water feature in the Children's Garden to create the magical underwater world of sea creatures and plants. It's was similar to Disney on Ice' rendition of the The Little Mermaid's Under the Sea. The only difference is, this time around the centre stage was a water playground instead of an ice rink. It was a big hit to the kids!

2) LED Performance - Fairytale Galaxy
Fairytale Galaxy is a futuristic tale of the classic fairytale, Cinderella. It was held at the SuperTree Groove, the perfect place for an out of this world performance. Look forward to an entertaining kid-friendly performance of circus acts, theatre, dance, upbeat music and eye-catching lighted costumes of the performers.

Amidst the beautiful setting of the Flower Dome, our storytellers will enchant audiences with the story of The Magic Flower Fairies – fairies with magical powers who live among the flowers. Young audiences will love the chance to take part in the telling and re-enacting of this tale, and in the process, learn about appreciating and working with each other’s unique gifts and qualities for the common good.
