The route starts at the National Museum of Singapore, continues through the Civic District and Marina Bay, and ends with a carnival at Gardens by the Bay. (See route above.)
Along the route, walkers can expect to be cheered and motivated by the People’s Association PAssionArts Works-of-Wonder gallery.
Works to be featured include large format visual arts installations in the form of Façade Art, Ground Art and Water Art.
Mr Alvin Yeo, the chairman of community engagement for the SG50 Jubilee Big Walk 2015, said the programme is specially planned by volunteers to offer a different community experience.
“We are happy to partner Singapore Press Holdings for this walk,” he said.
“Many community performers will brighten up the route where a walk with neighbours and friends can re-live the past, appreciate the present and relish the future.”
The walk will end with more fun at the finish with a carnival, lucky draw and an arts exhibition on Singapore’s future.
Among those waiting to sign up is retail assistant Lee Qiu Wei, 29, a long-time supporter of the Big Walk.
“I am so excited for the Jubilee Big Walk, I cleared my annual leave to participate… I won $100 last year, and I hope to win something bigger this year.”
