Next up, it’s time to pop the champagne at Clarke Quay’s New Year’s Eve block Party Countdown 31st December 2018, 9pm onwards, Monday. Bid goodbye to 2018 and ring in 2019 with a playful twist at Clarke Quay’s annual New Year’s Eve Countdown featuring a line-up of bands, DJs and MCs who will rave up the party atmosphere with music and entertainment at Clarke Quay’s Fountain Square. This year’s NYE’s block party theme PLAY will see specially constructed three-dimensional, solid-shaped play block structures designed to bring a fun and imaginative playground element to the party.
There’s never been a better time to unleash your inner child then this New Year’s eve. Vibrant coloured interlocking play blocks symbolizing the four main enclaves of Clarke Quay will be fabricated to create the main stage and various play areas. Expect to find a pedal-powered LED wall that will light up the harder you pedal; converting cycling power into beautiful illuminating patterns and lights.
Set your imagination free the minute you enter Clarke Quay where roaming, dancing, green “toy soldiers” and The Unicorn Parade (3m tall unicorn mascots) will interact with party-goers; providing many instagram-worthy photo moments to strike a pose and put on your best smile for the new year.
On stage, DJs Gerald Koh and Kimberly Wang from 987FM will host the countdown into 2019 with the party kicking into gear high at 9pm with award winning local band Shirlyn & The UnXpected performing energetic covers. There will be lots of stage games to get the show going before midnight strikes on New Year’s eve.
At midnight, raise your glasses and toast to the new year singing the traditional song of Auld Lang Syne, a time honoured custom practiced around the world. The party continues all around Clarke Quay at various bars and clubs.
Clarke Quay invites all to their PLAY themed block party 31st December, 9pm onwards, admission is free!
