    S'pore Night Fest made easy

    LIGHT shows, gravity-defying dancers, jugglers, flame throwers and interactive exhibitions.

    That's what audiences can expect at the Singapore Night Festival, which opens tonight.

    Some 400,000 people are expected to attend the fest, which was first organised in 2008. Last year, 476,000 flocked to the fest over four nights.

    This year, the event - which is costing its organiser, the National Heritage Board, around $1 million - is touted as the largest in terms of scale and content. Festival-goers can expect around 90 free programmes.

    The fest, which is on tonight and tomorrow, as well as next Friday and Saturday, has become a must-attend event for Singaporeans and tourists alike.

    It will be held beyond the usual Bras Basah and Bugis area, and stretch from Plaza Singapura to Raffles City, encompassing areas like Fort Canning Park.

    But what attractions should one see? And where are they?
