The Christmas on a Great Street light-up will be happening from Nov. 12, 2022 to Jan. 2, 2023.
The 39th edition of the Christmas light-up will stretch 3.1 kilometres from Tanglin Mall to Plaza Singapura.
The key design elements of this year's light-up include a carousel, a hot air balloon, and a ferris wheel.
Here are some artist impressions of this year's decor:
Main arch located at the junction of Orchard Road and Scotts Road:
Measuring 16 metres in height, the main arch features a medley of red, white, and teal design elements such as ornate Christmas trees. It will be decorated with reindeer and baubles on each side.

This welcome arch features teal and white ferris wheels, sprinkled with stars.
Christmas decor along Tanglin, Orchard and Somerset:
171 lamp posts will be dressed in LED decorations.
The decorations on each lamp post stand between nine to 12 metres in height, inclusive of the height of the lamp post.
There will also be a new addition to the street decorations, with 104 trees on Orchard Road to be lit with LED lights to add to the festivities.
The same lights will remain in place, taking on pink hues during the Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day period in 2023.
