The weekend is here once again and it’s time to take a well-deserved break! 

It doesn’t matter if you’re an outdoor junkie or you prefer to stay home, because there are events taking place both online and offline this weekend.  

Here are five things to do this weekend (Oct 16 to 18)

1. Cycle with some dinosaurs

Dinosaurs are in town! The Changi Jurassic Mile, a new walking and cycling path opened last Sunday. The 3.5km park connector, which stretches from Changi Airport Terminal 2 to East Coast Park, features permanent displays of over 20 dinosaurs. 

However, because of COVID-19 measures, you have to reserve a slot before visiting. You can do so here.

2. Have a great time at Zouk

While we still can’t go back to pre-COVID-19 dance parties just yet, at least we can step foot into Zouk again! 

The dance floor at the well-loved nightclub turns into a spin studio in the day and a cinema in the night, as part of its efforts to stay afloat during the pandemic.

There will be up to 12 spin classes available each day, with packages priced from S$39 for a single class to S$550 for 20 classes. Check out the packages here.

3. Practice those dance moves

This one is for all the dancers out there! The annual Da:ns Festival, organised by the Esplanade, is back with a series of performances both onscreen and backstage. 

This includes a ‘Footwork Fun-sized’ section where you can learn Bollywood and Balinese dances. British choreographer Wayne McGregor will also be hosting a creative workshop.

4. Watch some films

There’s yet another film festival this week and this time, it’s the German Film Festival.

5. Wait for the host with Pangdemonium

No, we are not asking you to wait for the host to start the Zoom meeting. Waiting For The Host is another online film event happening this weekend. 

Touted as a play within a play within a pandemic, it aims to boldly embrace the “new normal” through virtual theatre. The play is split into two parts and focuses on reigniting humanity’s touch. 

Tickets are priced at $45. Get them here.
