ACTIVE AGEING CARNIVAL
23 & 24 August 2008
This year the Active Ageing Festival is kicking off with a carnival where seniors can expand personal horizons and try out new things in a safe, fun and friendly atmosphere.
Embrace your more adventurous side with spin in a Go-Kart or aerial glide on the Flying Fox. There will also be talks, health screenings, games, demonstrations and trials from some 80 organizations and interest groups. This vibrant event also includes live performances, free screenings of classic movies and short films on aging by Singapore’s youths
No matter how old you are, it’s time to turn back the clock and have some fun.
Join the Parade for Grandparents’ Day
It’s that special time of year again; a time to celebrate your love and respect for your grandparents. C3A’s Grandparents’ Day celebrations aim to foster inter-generational bonding amongst young children. This year, this family affair will take place on Sunday 23 November.
Getting off to a Flying start
Parents, grandchildren and grandparents, put on a bright and cheerful fancy dress and take part in a lively parade march. The walk will take place from Esplanade Park and end at the Singapore Flyer, a distance of around 1km. Participants can also look forward to fun filled activities at the end of the walk, and concession rides up the Singapore Flyer.

Who is an Active Ager?
They are seniors who live their lives with vitality and meaning. They work, volunteer, look after grandchildren, study, travel, play… In other words, they are seniors who continue to grow in the six dimensions of their lives – Social, Emotional, Intellectual, Physical, Vocational and Spiritual.
This year, the Council for Third Age (C3A) is on the lookout for 5 such seniors* to win the Active Agers Award 2008! Find out more.
