~ Earth Hour 2012 @ Marina Bay ~

This is our 3rd year in support of the Earth Hour. Unlike the previous years, we decided to bring the children out and spend the evening at Marina Bay. Coincidentally, there are a couple of events happening along the bay. First and foremost, we witnessed a doggy parade as these beauties become the center of attraction as they stroll down with their owners. From Huskies, Bulldogs to Poodles and German Shepherds. All eyes and cameras were on them. Even the children cannot resist their charm.

As the night falls, we sat by the Marina Bay waterfront promenade and enjoy a series of performances put up by Temasek Junior College. I particularly like the orchestral performances and it was a nice scenic view with the sailboats and buildings as the backdrop.

Rhythms by the Bay is a series of free cultural performances and concerts taking place on the last Saturday of every month. It is an initative by URA to showcase the local performing talents in Singapore. :)

 Orchestral and Dance performances. COOL!

Earth Hour is only minutes away and there is already a crowd seated at The Lawn @ Marina Bay awaiting for the free movie screening (by NESCAFE® PAssion Movie Night). During Earth Hour, all 31 iLight featured artworks will also be switched off for an hour (830-930pm). We found a nice spot, layed our mats and all set to countdown to the event!

Earlier, the public participated in a Mass Light Catcher Creation workshop. As we countdown to Earth Hour, everyone shone their torches through their Light Catchers for the commemorative light-up! It was pretty dazzling!

We had a very different Earth Hour and was glad to be part of it. However, the efforts of Earth Hour doesn't just stop after the hour, we must always remind ourselves to conserve energy and do our part to save the environment in our daily life.
