Go back in time with giveaways of old school snacks and toys, games such as fishing fountain and hopscotch, and roving character mascots from the 1980s, all while tucking into traditional hawker dishes of the time at The 50 Cents Fest.
Everything will be sold at 50 cents, or in multiples of 50 cents, and you can expect ‘abacus seeds’ (yam gnocchi), Cantonese paper-wrapped chicken, Hokkien rickshaw noodles, and ice balls, among other local traditional dishes which are tough to find these days. After the feast, cap off your evening at Smith Street Taps at the nearby Chinatown Complex Food Centre for craft beer on draught.
Sat 12pm-11pm; Sun 11am-11pm. Free admission.
