    It’s touted as Singapore’s “biggest carnival” and it doesn’t disappoint.

    It is, in fact, a travelling funfair, owned and operated by an international community of showmen of 22 nationalities.

    It has been enthralling and delighting audiences at the biggest fairs and carnivals around the world, such as Winter Wonderland in London’s Hyde Park and The Great European Carnival in Hong Kong.

    This is the first time it has come to Singapore.

    Admission is free, but there are charges for the rides and game booths which range from $4 to $14.

    Among the highlights is the Star Flyer. Located at the Promontory, it is a tower ride that takes you 35m high and gives a 360-degree view of the Marina Bay skyline.

    Kids have to be at least 1.2m to go on it, but there are many other rides and entertainment to keep the preschoolers very happy!
