SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 1st January 2019 -
3m tall inflatable unicorns and green toy soldier mascots roaming around,
interactive LED light installations, interlocking play block structures and
just good live music were among the highlights for party goers who attended the
Clarke Quay Countdown Block Party. The theme for 2018 was PLAY and there was
plenty of it for some 30,000 revellers at Singapore's top entertainment and
food & beverage destination.
The free admission Countdown Block
Party anchored by Singapore's 987FM radio DJs Gerald Koh and Kimberly Wong
together with local band Shirlyn + the UnXpected, reached a feverish pitch when
the party-goers thronged the Fountain Square to join in the 60 second countdown
to 2019. At midnight, colourful confetti showered into the air followed by the
singing of Auld Lang Syne to officially herald New Year's day in Clarke Quay.
The moment, celebrated together with
everyone at the Fountain Square and in restaurants, bars and clubs in Clarke
Quay wrapped up Clarke Quay's year round-round parties and festivals for 2018.
"It's been a brilliant year for us as we look forward to more wining, dining
and good times in 2019," said Adrian Lai, Centre Manager, Clarke Quay.
All around Clarke Quay, bars, clubs
and restaurants shifted into high gear as the crowd at the Fountain Square
continued their celebrations way past the midnight hour and into the early
hours of 2019. Looking ahead in 2019, Clarke Quay has lined up a slew of
exciting events, starting with Valentine's Day, Singapore Festival of Fun and
Music After Sevens in the first part of the year. Not forgetting their promise
of everyday cheer with value Set Lunch and Supper offerings. Stay tuned to
