From Earth Hour celebrations to an outdoor carnival, plus heaps of discounts to bag – City Square Mall is the place to head with the family when school’s out…
We’re always on the hunt for the best activities to fill our calendar over the school holidays, and we’ve lucked out with the happenings over at City Square Mall. Not only are there options to keep everyone, from tots to teens, entertained, but what makes it even sweeter is the mall’s commitment to all things eco-friendly – something we’re really on board with. Here’s a sneak peek at what’s in store for all the family this March…
Celebrate Earth Hour: Movie screening, PUB mascots, music, and so much more!
What better way to spend the school hols than with some super-fun activities celebrating an important cause? City Square Mall is offering a host of Earth Hour activities as part of its Earth Hour Get-2gether.
First up, the family can check out a movie under the stars with the screening of WALL•E. Enjoy the free-flow popcorn (with all-time favourite flavours like chocolate, and exotic ones like nasi lemak and chilli crab) as you catch this classic from Disney and Pixar. The film is a great intro for the kids to the realities of consumerism and just how fragile our Earth is. You’ll also be watching it in good company, as special guests, PUB Mascots Water Wally and Sally will be making an appearance.
The performances don’t stop there – the fam will also be treated to live performances by the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and Trella Trio as part of the celebrations. All this, and fun quizzes to get the kiddos clued up on water conservation and our earth, with cool prizes up for grabs. Educational and awesome – win, win!
When: 25 March 2023, 7.30pm (Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and Trella Trio will also be performing on 24 March at 7pm)
Where: B1 Fountain Square
You can redeem four passes for the Earth Hour Get-2gether with $60* spent, plus a picnic basket (worth $100).
Go blue with the family for Singapore World Water Day

And eco-friendly initiatives to get involved with
We are not just big fans of City Square Mall because of its awesome activities; we also love that it aims to make a difference through its eco-friendly initiatives. You can also get on board and do your bit this school hols. If you’re driving a green vehicle (eg. electric cars, hybrids, etc.) to the mall, you’ll be pleased to know that there are dedicated Green Vehicle Parking Lots near the travelator lobby at B3 and B4, as well as EV Charging Stations at B4.
Get the kids to Marie Kondo their rooms and bring unwanted items to The Green & Social Good Space at City Square Mall. There’s a Greensquare textile recycling bin, an e-waste facility, a food bank, as well as an adult diaper donation drive so you and the kids can do a good deed and make a difference. You can also start training the family with the eco habit of bringing your own bottles to reduce single-use plastic bottles – City Square Mall has got you covered with a free Water Refill Station at its Customer Service Counter at L2.
