Bedok Point’s Stacks of Fun: Family bonding activities

 

bedok point stacks of fun

It won’t take much convincing to get anyone to go to Bedok Point. A veritable food paradise located right within the Bedok heartland, Bedok Point brings together an ensemble of favourite F&B places, including Hoshino Coffee, Chicken Hotpot, Ssik Sin Korean Barbecue Buffet Restaurant, and Shi Li Fang. 

And now there’s even more reason for you to swing by Bedok Point, as it is putting together Stacks of Fun, an event that runs from now to 9 September 2018. Celebrating the amazing things you can create with humble LEGO bricks, this event promises to bring your family closer together through a medley of activities.

Below are the key features of the event to look forward to.

 

Be wowed by a brick reproduction of Singapore’s iconic symbols

 

Spicing up LEGO with a distinct made-in-Singapore flavour is Nation Building! The Exhibition. Walk through Singapore’s rich history through exhibits like 80s Kopitiam, where an old-school breakfast setting from the ‘80s is lovingly reconstructed.

If you’re a fan of the European architecture that marked Singapore’s colonial past, you will appreciate the re-creation of the Old Supreme Court.

Or if you’re still recoiling from post-NDP blues, check out Black Knight, the jazzy reproduction of the F-16C Fighting Falcon used by the Air Force for their stunning sky aerobatics performances.
