Christmas lovers will be thrilled to know that it’s getting closer to ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ – the Orchard Road Christmas Light Up begins on 13 November 2020!
Every year, the Orchard Road Business Association pulls out all the stops to present a magical Orchard Road Christmas experience with its “Christmas on a Great Street“, and this year will be extra special. Celebrating solidarity in light of Covid-19 with the theme ‘Love This Christmas’, this year’s Orchard Road Christmas Light Up will celebrate a traditional-looking Christmas with lots of baubles, presents, holly and mistletoe in shades of gold, white and blue!
While there won’t be The Great Christmas Village this year, you can still delight the kiddos with all the lights that will be lit along the 3.1-kilometre stretch from Tanglin Mall to Plaza Singapura! Look forward to plenty of great photo opportunities (use the kirakira+ app or try some Tiktok filters if you want your photos and videos to be extra sparkly!). Whether you have toddlers or teenagers, this year promises to have something for the whole family. Scroll through our gallery to see some of the highlights….
Christmas Lights: 13 November 2020 – 1 January 2021, 6:30pm onwards daily
The main highlight of the Orchard Road Christmas Light Up is the 14-metre main arch located at the junction of Orchard Road – Scotts Road, featuring an enormous gift box wrapping in dazzling white and blue! With reindeers on each side, this arch was made to be impressive both at night and during the day, so you can enjoy its magnificence even in daylight!
This year the three zones will feature 178 new lamppost decorations, with 80 sets of overstreet decor in total! Tanglin, Orchard and Somerset will be a decked out in a decorative web of intertwined hollies and mistletoes in various sparkly hues.
This year, the light up will take place on 13 November 2020 and will be officiated by Mdm Halimah Yacob, President of the Republic of Singapore. You can join the festivities by watching the light-up ceremony taking place live on Facebook, and access a 360º Virtual Tour via christmas.orchardroad.org from anywhere in the world!
