Unleash the Fun: Exciting Activities for Pawrents and Furkids
Singapore, 1st August 2023 – Gather your furry friends and mark your calendars for the upcoming SingaPAW Weekend at South Beach Avenue on the 5th and 6th of August. This much-awaited event promises a paw-triotic celebration in honor of Singapore’s 58th National Day, with a plethora of activities for both pet parents and their beloved furkids.
A Paw-fect Playground for Pets
Hosted at the trendy lifestyle district, SingaPAW Weekend is set to captivate pet enthusiasts with an array of exciting events. From meeting new furry and feathery friends to exploring a pet market and participating in the animal marathon, this weekend extravaganza guarantees unforgettable moments for all.
Record-Breaking Moments Await
Last year’s SingaPAW Weekend made history, with 313 pets and their devoted hoomans securing a place in the Singapore Book of Records for the largest pet and owner formation. This year, the fun continues with an attempt to create Singapore’s largest photo collage of pawrents and their furkids. Embrace the chance to share cherished memories with your pets as you pose for pictures at the delightful photobooth near JW Marriott Hotel on Level 1, with the photos later forming a monumental SG58 sculpture.
Action-Packed Marathon for Your Pooch
For furkids who love a challenge, the Temptation Trail and Pawmazing Marathon await. The Temptation Trail, on Saturday (5th August), will test your dog’s self-control as they resist tasty treats and other distractions along the track. On Sunday (6th August), put on your thinking cap and team up with your furry companions for the Pawmazing Marathon, solving clues and completing tasks together to reach the finish line.
Embrace Compassion: Adoption Drive
For those considering expanding their fur-family, the adoption drive offers a heartwarming opportunity to provide a loving forever home to rescued and rehabilitated dogs, cats, hamsters, birds, and rabbits. Multiple animal welfare groups will be present to help you find the perfect furry companion.
Beyond Furry Friends: Bird Paradise and Ant Colony
SingaPAW Weekend doesn’t just cater to mammals. Bird enthusiasts will be in awe as parrot enthusiast groups Birdies and Family and Parrot Society Singapore showcase over 30 captivating feathered species, with the possibility of witnessing a breathtaking aerial display.
Intriguingly, the event will also spotlight the budding ant community in Singapore. The Ant Nest, inspired by the National Day Parade, will proudly display the Singapore Ant Community’s diverse ant colonies, offering insights into responsible ant ownership for hobbyists.
Treats, Shopping & Souvenirs
After all the excitement, take a well-deserved break at one of the pet-friendly alfresco restaurants on South Beach Avenue. Then, indulge in some re-TAIL therapy at the SingaPAW Weekend Pet Market, featuring over 40 booths offering a variety of products, from food and toys to grooming supplies. Support local businesses and find unique animal-themed bags and accessories, or even get a customized portrait of your pet.
