What is the event about
Christmas celebrations begin early in Singapore with the much-anticipated Christmas Light-Up starting in November. Now in its 27th year, the Christmas Light-Up theme varies every year and this year’s theme is ‘A Starlit Christmas’. On 20 November, witness President S R Nathan switch on the magnificent lights at the Switch On Ceremony outside ION Orchard and be mesmerised by the twinkling star-shaped lights adorning the entire stretch of Orchard Road.
The dazzling Christmas Light-Up is best enjoyed by cruising along Orchard Road at night and tourists will be able to do just that by hopping onto the open-top bus rides plying the shopping strip. What’s more, the open-top bus offers a prime spot for plenty of photo opportunities of the Light Up and memories to bring home.
With festive cheer all around, a spirit of competitiveness will fill the air as well. Buildings along Orchard Road will all be decked out in their Christmas best as they fight it out for the title of ‘Best Dressed Building’.
Buildings competing for the title are 313@somerset, Forum The Shopping Mall, Grand Park Orchard, ION Orchard, Orchard Central, Paragon, Takashimaya Shopping Centre/Ngee Ann City, TANGS Orchard@ Tang Plaza, The CentrePoint, The Heeren and Wisma Atria. 
The Christmas cheer will also spread to Marina Bay which will have a similar Starlit-themed Light-Up under the name of ‘Marina Bay Christmas Splendour’. Further, this will be the debut Christmas season for Marina Bay Sands® and you can expect nothing less than the best at this iconic landmark. Dazzling decorations and superb offers at its Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands® are just the beginning of an event that will quickly become a mainstay on the Christmas calendar.
