This was followed by a breakfast picnic at the Empress Lawn.

Family members bonded with one another over food and fitness activities around the Civic District. In the evening, this was followed by a movie screening, local music performances and an evening picnic.

“We are happy to have the opportunity to work with Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and other partners to celebrate the occasion in conjunction with Car Free Sunday SG,” said Mr Ching Wei Hong, Families for Life Council Chairman.

More To Come

Mr Ching added, “Moving forward, families in Singapore can look forward to bigger and better picnics with more programming that will be held at heartland parks, and in conjunction with special occasions such as Father’s Day, National Day and Grandparents’ Day.”
