Maitreyi visits the carnival @Gateway Arts Festival and discovers a series of fun workshops and activities for kids this July. 

 

Get ready for some fun-filled festivities for kids because Gateway Arts Festival is in full swing!

The festival features workshops, shows, and for this weekend only, a carnival with free admission!

The carnival takes place @ the Sky Garden on the 6th floor of 3615 Jalan Bukit Merah, an open space with ample seating and lush greenery.

Attractions include a bouncy castle, face-painting, carnival games, arts and crafts, balloon animals, and some snacks for you and your children to enjoy. While admission is free, some attractions such as the face-painting and arts and crafts cost $2 – $3 so it is worth carrying some change. There is also a jungle gym and a juggler, so be ready to put your motor skills to the test!
