With highlights like a Christmas Village and a Countdown Concert, you’re definitely all set to get into the festive spirit
Planning a shopping spree along the Orchard Road belt? Well, you might want to spend more than just a few hours there, as the ever-colourful Christmas on A Great Street is happening once again – and it’s bringing on major festive feels here in Singapore.
The annual bonanza sees the iconic district (and its glitzy malls) come to life with a dazzling street light-up and must-sees like spectacular installations. This year’s theme, ‘Endless Wonder’, features a visual roadside feast, along with other free-to-enter-and-see features and attractions like the Great Christmas Village and the Christmas Eve Countdown Concert.
Held at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza, the Great Christmas Village (now till 25 December 2017) has a cool Christmas market. Shop and dine away as you check out the pop-up stalls by Starbucks, PAUL Bakery, Jack Wills, Takashimaya Toys Store, and more of your favourite brands. If you’ve got kids in tow, they’ll love the idea of meeting and greeting Santa in the Hitachi Santa House (don’t forget to snap a photo!), as well as the amusement rides like The London Train and The Tea Cup ($5 per ride).
Also taking place at the Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza is the Christmas Eve Countdown Concert on 24 December 2017. From 8pm onwards, gather around the space to catch the line-up of local acts performing familiar Christmas classics and sing along as they belt out tunes to chart-topping English and Mandarin pop hits. Stick around as the clock strikes 12 for a grand pyrotechnics display!
That’s not all, of course. Orchard Road has pulled out all the stops for Christmas. Take a stroll and drop by buildings like Forum The Shopping Mall, Wisma Atria, and ION Orchard to check out the five festive light installations like the Walk of Wonder – a 20-metre long passageway that shines and sparkles, thanks to the special reflective fabric and fairy lights. You know you want a picture here.
