10-11 Aug: Traditional Wayang at Pulau Ubin

Come to Pulau Ubin to enjoy authentic traditional wayang in celebration of the Hungry Ghost Festival.
Ubin jetty is usually colourfully decorated for the celebrations!
There will be a free nightly wayang show (10-11 Aug). This is NOT a special performance put up for the public, but a part of the traditions at Ubin.

Thanks to Sumita Thiagarajan for sharing this photo of the notice announcing this event.
