It's finally CNY weekend, which means it's time to celebrate. Here's what you can look forward to this week.
1. Wild About 牛 Year @ WRS Parks
Celebrate the Year of the Ox with the animals of Wildlife Reserves Singapore. This year, animals like the sea lions at Singapore Zoo, cockatoos at Jurong Bird Park and capybaras at River Safari will be ringing in the Lunar New Year with lucky numbers, auspicious red packets and festive greetings in their usual wildlife shows.
In addition, your kids can catch a glimpse of animals enjoying special festive treats, or embark upon a 牛 (niú) Year New Friend Trail as part of My Animal Buddy, where they'll help three animals gather ingredients to make a festive ‘Lou-HAY’ platter.
The best part? Local residents enjoy up to 30% off on admission tickets during this period!
