When was the last time you visited a carnival?

I am not talking about USS; I am talking about the old-school carnivals that have rides such as the bumper cars, carousels, and pirate ships.

It is probably Uncle Ringo, giving us a night of nostalgia albeit fleeting.

Now, there is a carnival in town that is of epic proportions.

I am talking the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival.

Doesn’t it look magical?

Still not convinced?

Here are 10 facts about the biggest carnival in Singapore that will change your mind.

1) The biggest carnival in Singapore

According to the carnival team, this is Singapore’s biggest carnival, Channel NewsAsia reported.

Spanning 25,000 sq m, the carnival is as huge as the size of three and a half football fields!

I am guessing, this could be a whole day event or maybe a date?

2) It will be at Marina Bay

As the moniker suggests, it will be located at Marina Bay—The Promontory and Bayfront Event Space to be exact.

The carnival will operate from 8 Dec 2017 to 1 Apr 2018.

3) It is free

Okay, technically it is free because you don’t have to pay for admission. But you still have to pay for the rides and games.

4) You can buy the credits online

Don’t waste time buying the credits on the day itself. You can actually purchase them online!

The organisers mentioned that the games and rides will cost betwixt $4 to $10 which is pretty decent, given that it is located in Marina Bay

5)  Star Flyer
