Every year, we look forward to the spectacular Christmas lights up and decorations at Orchard Road. This year, Orchard Road Business Association (ORBA) presents “The Greatest Gift” which will run from 16 November 2019 – 1 January 2020. The adorable little Santas will be ORBA’s new Christmas icons, hanging from the trees and on the glittering arches welcoming visitors to Orchard Road.
This year marks the 36th year of the signature Christmas on a Great Street featuring new showcase format to provide a more immersive experience for pedestrians as they walk along the precinct this festive season. There will be bigger and grander lamp post decorations lining up the three sub-precincts, namely, Tanglin, Orchard and Somerset, each with a unique theme featuring little Santas on baubles, gift boxes or snowflakes.
Look out for the new welcome arch at the junction of Tanglin and Grange Road and more than thirty giant-sized festive greeting cards on three-metre tall glass shards along the key stretch of Orchard Road. For the first time, street decorations are also extended towards Grange Road and Orchard Link. Unique interactive set pieces will be put up on the pavements of Orchard Road providing many insta-worthy backdrops. Visitors can pose with a giant Santa riding on his reindeer, help pull Santa’s reindeer, or walk through a four-metre tall tunnel made up of large Christmas icons.
The Great Christmas Village will run from 23 November – 26 December 2019 with more than 30 amusement rides and game booths located at *Scape, Shaw House Urban Plaza and Grange Road Car Park.
The Light-Up Ceremony will be officiated by Mdm Halimah Yacob, President of the Republic of Singapore to be held at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza on Saturday, 16 November 2019.
