Five things to do this weekend (Oct 14-16)
Stargazing, silent discos and sneakers – take your pick!
From a silent disco to a cosplay festival, there’s no shortage of events to enjoy this October.
Here are five things to do this weekend (Oct 14 to 16):
1. Stargaze at Woodlands Galaxy CC Observatory
The Woodlands Galaxy CC Observatory has reopened for the first time since 2020.
Visitors will have access to proper stargazing equipment like the sky90 takahashi to view astronomical phenomena that would otherwise be indiscernible to the naked eye.
Stargazing sessions are held on Friday evenings, subject to weather conditions. Entry to the Woodlands Galaxy CC observatory costs $1 per pax. Tickets can be purchased on its Facebook page every Friday or at its counter, which closes at 6pm.
2. Browse through sneakers at SNKRDUNK’s flagship store at Mandarin Gallery
Japan’s leading customer to customer platform for selling sneakers, SNKRDUNK, will open its flagship store at the retail venue on Oct 15.
The store will hold a raffle on opening day at 7.30am, which features 100 pairs of sneakers available at retail price.
This includes 10 exclusive collaborative sneakers, such as the Travis Scott x Nike Air Jordan 1 Low “reverse Mocha” and the Sacai x Nike LDV Waffle.
3. Catch international cosplayers Neneko and Joo A at Cosfest 2022
Cosfest will make its return at Downtown East from Oct 15 to 16.
The cosplay event features over 100 exhibition booths and appearances by international cosplay celebrities Neneko from Taiwan and Joo A from South Korea, who will also perform on the first day.
Tickets to Cosfest 2022 cost $12 for a one-day pass and $22 for a two-day pass.
4. Explore the 7th edition of the Singapore Biennale
The Singapore Biennale 2022 (SB2022), named Natasha, will take place at a variety of locations beyond Tanjong Pagar Distripark and traditional gallery settings.
From Sunday (Oct 16), visitors can tour installations at various locations including International Plaza, the Singapore Flyer, Sentosa Cove, as well as everyday spaces like regional libraries and Yan Kit Playfield.
5. Dance away at Pelago's Silent Disco In The Sky
Vibe silently at Silent Disco Asia as it returns after a two-and-a-half year hiatus.
For the uninitiated, silent discos replace the conventional clubbing experience where headphones take the place of music that is usually blasted out.
Partygoers will be equipped with a pair of LED-lit headphones and can toggle between three DJs and their respective music styles.
Located at the Marina Bay Sands’ SkyPark Observation Deck, the event will run from Oct 14 to Nov 5 on every Friday and Saturday.
Tickets go for $50, and each session will run from 10pm till 2am.
