free things to do in singapore

From local food festivals and free dance performances to neon-lit volleyball games on the beach, here are 4 fun – and free – events to enjoy with family and friends this November.

Halloween is over, but the real scary thing is that Christmas is just around the corner — again! — and it’s almost time to bid farewell to yet another year.

That said, it is a time of making merry; i.e., a time of spending lots of money what with all the gifts you need to buy, and all the parities you want to attend.

But you know, that doesn’t mean you need to deprive yourself this month in order to have more fun in the next. To save yourself a bit of money, check out these 4 free activities you can enjoy with your friends this November!
