Halloween events in Singapore isn’t typically a tradition – so it might be a little challenging to find like-minded people who’d like to ring in a little spooky season with fun and games.
Especially with little tots in tow, you’ve definitely got to be more selective about which events you show up to (don’t want any monsters under the bed at night…)
You can thank us later but – here’s a simplified list of Halloween Events in Singapore this year suitable for kids of all ages:
1. 3-Hour Newton Show
As the name suggests, you can expect this Halloween event in Singapore to be a nerdy one. Perfect for kids 4 to 12 years, if your kid is into science, this 3-hour experiential program will leave your little scientist feeling sweeter than candy!
What you can expect your child to takeaway from this program: spooky science experiments, baking Halloween cookies, and making Halloween lanterns! Your kids will also come home with souvenirs from all the crafty bits they’ve put together all by themselves!
For maximum fun, dress your kid up in a cool Halloween costume. Our finest suggestion? Probably Albert Einstein or mini Isaac Newton to get on with the programme!

(After all, it’s Halloween) All donations will go to FaithActs Charity, a non-profit organisation which cares for beneficiaries who’re children with learning difficulties, youths-at-risk, disadvantaged families and seniors.
