Even if you’re not there for the music, you can feast your eyes on spectacular sports car showcases, dazzling fashion shows and take part in charity auctions of rare F1 memorabilia, art, wine and whisky.

Located just 200m away from the F1 building, the Podium Lounge consistently sees celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Gordon Ramsey and Princess Charlene of Monaco. If you’re lucky, you might even get to get up close and personal with a famous person or two.

Gardens by the Bay is ushering in the fall season with a farm-inspired showcase with plants like chrysanthemums, callunas and phloxes. It wouldn’t be a mid-autumn showcase without the beloved fall classic – pumpkin. Be prepared to be awestruck by rare pumpkin varieties that come in usual colours like white. Did we mention that there will even be a striped pumpkin? To top it all off, there is also a giant pumpkin carriage so you can play Cinderella. Who knows you might just meet your prince charming?

Where: Gardens by the Bay, 18 Marina Gardens Dr, S018953

When: Now-Sept 30, 2017
