October in Singapore is looking extra lit with Deepavali (also known as Diwali or the Festival of Lights) as the streets of Little India are illuminated with a kaleidoscope of vibrant hues. And since the cultural event takes place on October 27, that means October 28 is a public holiday – time to plan a day of fun. 

Whatever your definition of 'lit' is, there are a plethora of things to do this month. Do the thriller at Halloween Horror Nights, raise your glasses at Wine Fiesta, celebrate Children's Day at Octoburst!, discover Disney's Magic of Animation, explore the world of dance at da:ns Festival, and more. Don't stay basic with your pumpkin spice latte – hit the streets and spice up your October.
