First Pikachu Night Parade outside Japan lights up Sentosa
Pika pika! Pika pika pika! Piika? Pika pika!
Which is to say, the Pikachu Night Parade has arrived on Sentosa’s shores, and, well, it’s just too darn cute. Read on to find out how you can catch it in person.
The Pikachu Night Parade is here as part of Sentosa’s Island Lights festival, an event that features Instagram-able installations by artists along Palawan Beach.
For an ultra-adorbs 5 minutes or so, a gang of LED lights-equipped Pikachu will dance, pirouette and just be too cute. Led by afro / grandma/ soap suds Pikachu (I’m sure it’s an afro, but the alternatives are also kawaii), the row of Pikachu will also do absolutely ridiculous things that will make you, or the child with you, delighted.
Want to catch the Pikachu Night Parade in person? The parade will also be held on Dec 15, 16, 21, 22, and 23. The show starts at 7.30pm each day, with an extra show at 8pm on Saturdays (Dec 15 and 22). The nearest station is Beach Station, and go early to get a good spot! Entrance is free (not including entrance into Sentosa).
You can also head down to the Nintendo Switch room nearby, which has 3 gaming setups for you to try out Pokemon Let’s Go with the family.
Meanwhile, Pikachu walking at 2x speed is … kinda insane. Pika pika!
