The public got to unleash their creativity on a stretch of road in Telok Ayer as part of Car-Free Sunday SG. The activity aimed to jazz up the area with vibrant chalk art. Car-Free Sunday SG, which saw several roads in Telok Ayer, the Civic District and the surrounding areas closed to traffic from 8am to noon, drew joggers, cyclists, personal mobility device users and heritage enthusiasts, among others. The annual Families for Life Celebrations, held in conjunction with the event, also saw families bonding over music performances, picnics and street games. Car-Free Sunday SG is a community initiative helmed by the Urban Redevelopment Authority. This year's event also included the first European Union-Singapore cycling rally, with ambassadors. The 5km cycling event was jointly organised by the German and Dutch embassies, and the European Union in Singapore.
