BEDA 2013.1 #16: Serangoon PICNIC

Saturday afternoon had this crazy heat that went to the late afternoon. For most people, that was their cue to head to the open field in front of Blk 129 in front of Serangoon North Ave 1 – where Serangoon PICNIC was going on.

It was rather simple, a few tents on a huge field, and stuff to do around. In a nutshell, there was an event space for independent singers, bands, and entertainers, another tent where there was storytelling, and another space where they had woodblock printing, kite painting, Books Actually, and the Silver Yarn Project.

Though to hand you the great experience of it all, here’s a barrage of pictures to show you how it was like:

Max ended up sketching a bit and I was writing on analog. It was actually great to go to an event which had a bit more space, and more family-orientated, in the heartlands for a change. I hope the rain later that night did not create that much of trouble though!Blanket Fortress Logo
