Here are five things to do this weekend (Jun 2-4):

1. Hang out at food and music festival Gastrobeats

Local bands like 53A, Shirlyn & The UnXpected and Jack & Rai will also be ready to entertain with their live music sets.

If you wish to spend time with little ones at the inflatable play zones, be sure to purchase tickets at $15.60 via Pelago to enter the area.

3. Immerse yourself into nature-themed interactive light displays at i Light

This year’s run of i Light will feature multi-sensory light installations referencing nature’s blue spaces such as oceans and rivers.

Visitors can expect to see Glacier Dreams, a large-scale projection on the exterior of the ArtScience Museum installed to raise awareness of rising sea levels and climate change.

Another light display featured at The Promontory is Lightwave: Turning the Tide, where rising sea levels have submerged humans in an underwater world.
