What if there were no cars on the streets of your neighborhood, at least during Sunday, so you can enjoy a clean and calm atmosphere? In a world suffocated by traffic, such an idea sounded delightful for the people living in the Civic District, Bencoolen Street, and Telok Ayer. But, the inhabitants of these three districts of Central Area of Singapore will enjoy more than just a car-free Sunday, as the area will be packed with a wide diversity of fun activities for this May edition of the event.
If the other districts were used to this kind of manifestations, the Bencoolen Street will enjoy this kind of Sunday for the first time this year. The date of 28th of May does not represent just the celebration of the Car-Free Sunday, but also the completion of a number of improvements done to the street. So, for the people living here, the joy will be double. Everybody will be able to walk, jog, or ride a bike on a total distance of 6.7 kilometers, which is a rather generous area. If you visit the Civic district during this manifestation, be prepared to enjoy a broad range of activities specially picked for families to enjoy, all of them organized by the Families for Life Council. And, in the Telok Ayer Conservation Area, the public will be able to enjoy the Xinyao Breakfast Concert, which will take place between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. and will feature a number of appreciated artists.
