Christmas at KINEX 2022

If the festive songs haven’t rang a bell, let us remind you that it’s December already. It’s time to start planning what you’re going to do this holiday, especially if you’ve got young ones to entertain. Well, you may want to celebrate Christmas at KINEX where a lot is happening.

A bubble artist will be performing live, new restaurants are opening, and a charity market is popping up. Here’s what to expect at the mall this month.

Catch SG’s top bubble artist perform live

The kids have probably seen clowns and magicians perform at birthday parties plenty of times but it is not often you get to see a bubble artist perform live.

The Candilicious Bubble Show from 13th-18th December 2022 will feature CJ the Bubble Girl showing off her magic. And if your kid gets inspired by her charming antics, they can try their hand at a Bubbleology Workshop to learn some bubble magic. 

Shoppers who spend a minimum of $50 in 2 same-day receipts will be eligible for an e-Pass*. There are limited passes available for the workshop on a first come first served basis so head straight to the Customer Service Counter on Level 2 to redeem your e-Pass once you’ve completed your shopping.

Anyone who presents a single, same-day receipt of $20 may redeem a pass to experience being in a giant bubble on stage. Passes will be available an hour before the show starts.
