Orchard Road Christmas Light-up 2021 will feature a giant video projection and augmented reality fireworks!
Date: 13 Nov 2021 - 2 Jan 2022
Time: from 6.30 pm
The highlight of the annual Orchard Road Christmas light-up includes a giant outdoor video projection that takes up an entire wall of the Mandarin Orchard hotel and augmented reality (AR) fireworks that shoppers can see through an App.
Singapore's most popular shopping street will light-up with about 68km of fairy lights and oversized floral decorations, with some parts dressed with bold neon lights - it is themed "Christmas in Bloom".
Similar as 2020, there will not be any street activities or performances. Instead speakers playing popular Christmas carols will be setup along he stretch between ION Orchard and Ngee Ann City. The tunes will play daily between 5pm and 10.30pm, extended to 12.30am for Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve.
The Main Arch
At the Scotts-Paterson road junction, a 12m tall arch will be decorated with colourful lights accentuated with red and rose gold poinsettias. This junction is usually seen as the main arch and the beginning of the shopping street.
Decoration Along Orchard Road
White Christmas roses perched on gold arches decorate the stretch starting at the Cairnhill-Orchard road junction to The Atrium @ Orchard.
Red poinsettias decorations will start from the stretch near Tanglin Mall all the way to the Paterson Road junction.
