2019 Children’s Festival at Gardens by the Bay

Check out what’s coming to Singapore in June!

Toy Story 4 GBB

Every year, Gardens by the Bay hosts a Children’s Festival. This year, as part of a three-year collaboration with the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia (Disney), they will be presenting something extra special. Coinciding with the movie release, families will have the chance to step into the magical world of Toy Story 4. The event will be running from the 15th to 30th of June 2019.

The 2019 Children’s Festival will transform the Supertree Grove into a life-size play room. Packed with family-friendly games and activities, inspired by Buzz, Woody and the gang in an all-new Toy Story adventure, children will learn about friendship and teamwork.

About Gardens by the Bay

An integral part of Singapore’s “City in a Garden” vision, Gardens by the Bay spans a total of 101 hectares of prime land at the heart of Singapore’s new downtown – Marina Bay. Comprising three waterfront gardens – Bay South, Bay East and Bay Central – Gardens by the Bay will be a showcase of horticulture and garden artistry that will bring the world of plants to Singapore and present Singapore to the World. Bay South, the largest at 54 hectares, officially opened on 29 June 2012.

Gardens by the Bay was started as a project by the National Parks Board. It has since grown to become an independent organisation responsible for developing and managing what will be Asia’s foremost garden destination.

The Gardens has garnered numerous awards and accolades, including the 2015 Guinness World Record for “Largest Glass Greenhouse”, “Best Theme Attraction” at the TTG Travel Awards in 2015 and 2016, and “Best Attraction (Asia Pacific)” at the Travel Weekly Asia Reader’s Choice Awards in 2015 and 2016. It also received the prestigious “Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement” in 2014 from the Themed Entertainment Association. For its sustainable design and practices, it was conferred the “President’s Design Award 2013” in Singapore and “World Building of the Year” at the World Architecture Festival 2012.

About Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story 4

Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) has always been confident about his place in the world, and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. So when Bonnie’s beloved new craft- project-turned-toy, Forky (voice of Tony Hale), declares himself as “trash” and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family’s road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts). After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries.

Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story 4 will be in cinemas in Malaysia in 20 June 2019.
