One of our favorite events taking place in the Marina Bay precinct, sustainable light installation fest i Light Marina Bay is back again this March, lighting up the waterfront and our Instagram feeds for the fifth year in a row with massive, dazzling displays by design studios from around the region and the world. And that's not all, the festival is also known for its festival village, market, food options and other fun activities.

There's a slight tweak to the program this year: there will be three themed festival hubs at different locations—The Promontory, The Float and the Bayfront event space. Located at The Promontory, The Fantastical World of eco.me organized by The Rice Company Ltd will have activities like a recycling and upcycling marketplace, an urban farming showcase, theater and live music performances and arts and crafts fair. Also, in the other hubs, you can expect to see large inflatable animal structures and find food vendors at Gastrobeats.

And as for the main attraction, there will be exhibiting numerous huge light installations from students of National University of Singapore, Singapore University of Technology and Design and LASALLE College of the Arts, local artworks from Syndicate, Lee Yun Qin and multidisciplinary team collaborations. There are also collaborations nine overseas light festivals, including first-time tie-ups with Amsterdam Light Festival, Bella Skyway Festival (Poland) and Scottsdale Public Art and Salt River Project (United States).
