|The Crowd @ Marina Barrage|
No controversial Food, no 'atas' attitube, all kids welcome.
We were invited to U family - U Picnic held at Marina Barrage on 6th October. The event was a sell out! We were there early at 430 pm, but the main carpark at Marina Barrage was already full. Luckily we managed to find Carpark B across the street ( If you are heading to any events in Marina Barrage, do note carpark B entrance is located at the turn before Gardens by the Bay)
We found this Chipmunk along the way, there are a couple of mascots roaming the streets. We could not identify them but we like taking photos with them. Maybe U Family can have a permanent mascot for kids to identify with in the future.
There was a huge crowd at Marina Barrage, it was reported in Sunday Times to have 5000 participants in the event! Thankfully, there are lots of space on the picnic ground for everyone.
As we were part of the media invite (Thanks MNC and U Family), we managed to skip the queues and head straight to the picnic ground. However we must say the registration and collection were well organise as the participants were moved briskly to their picnic basket collection.

Unfortunately we did not participate in any of the above. Our picnic set up is a humble picnic basket from U Family together with some homemade sandwiches and popiah. We did made a feeble attempt at best dressed family by dressing up in a all white theme, but it may be challenging for the organisers to pick us as there are more worthy participants.

Thanks U Family for the kite, we will be making use of it often!

There were also fringe events such as bouncing castle and windmill making on the first level. We did not participate as the queues seemed quite long.

Ok, i lied, we can't sit still for 4 hours. Midway through ,we had to stretch our legs and have some bubble fun!
As you can see from the photos, we were not exactly freezing but we qualified at the end of the 1 minute pose.

Overall, it was an enjoyable and relaxing experience for us. We loved the picnic idea and look forward to future U picnics.
We were invited to U Picnic for a media review. No monetary rewards received . All opinions are of our own.
