Snow, Tesla And Carnival Cheer: The Great Bay Fiesta 2022 Will Blow Minds

Christmas came early.
25 November 2022

Stunning decorations, jolly music and delicious bites, December is the most wonderful time of the year. In celebration of the festivities, The Show Master by Uncle Ringo, and Marina Bay Sands are hosting The Great Bay Fiesta – a month-long event with merry activities for everyone.

The main attraction is presented by Gandey’s Circus, a world class troupe of entertainers, in Around The World in 80 Minutes. The show unravels in the Big Top with nine acts curated from all over Europe with thrilling stunts, knee-slapping comedy and dazzling performances.

The lineup includes Duo Adrenlina, firing a crossbow that narrowly misses their partners’ head, The Thunderdome, a group of motorbikers who will manoeuvre their roaring bikes in a 5-metre diameter cage, and the Panther Troupe, which specialises in nail-biting aerial feats.

Of course, a fiesta is never the same without a carnival with tons of prizes to be won. Uncle Ringo will bring the fun with nostalgic rides reminiscent of the Great World Amusement Park with rides such as the Ringo slide, pirate ship, bumper cars and more.

And who said we need to travel to experience the magic of snow? The Great Fantasy on Ice is an indoor winter wonderland with two chilly areas – the first, the snow section where visitors may play with snow created by the same machines as the Beijing Winter Olympics.

Make snowmans, snow angels or have a snowball fight with your friends and family. If adventure is more your thing, head to the ice section where everyone is welcomed to try their hand at ice bowling or curling. There is also an ice rink with single or tandem bikes.

The ice section also has a dedicated bar that serves ice cold beer and themed cocktails throughout the night. The pop-up café by chocolate origin will also keep energy levels up with sweet treats.

Speaking of food and drinks, the fiesta grounds will include festive fares from local and international brands such as Grill by Cut, My NoNNa’s and 10 vendors flown in from Thailand to spice things up. After all, a happy belly makes for a happier time.

As a bonus, Tesla will also be making an appearance with its first ever Electric Light Show that features three car models – Model 3, Model Y, and Tesla Supercharger. The electric vehicles' headlights, taillights and cabin lights are programmed to be in sync with the music to perform a jazzy light show. Car fanatics will also be able to test drive these bad boys but registration is required.
