'Tis the season for Orchard Road's annual Christmas light-up.
The light-up ceremony took place on Nov. 16, officiated by President Tharman Shanmugaratnam at Shaw House Urban Plaza.
This year marks its 40th edition. The theme: a child's imagination.
Here's what it looks like.
The decorations mimic a "cotton candy cloud dreamscape", with pastel LED clouds amid seasonal motifs like candy canes, Christmas trees, and reindeer.
In the name of sustainability, the light-up also includes LED lights and decor from past years.
Solar panels have also been installed for two Christmas set pieces, said the Orchard Road Business Association in a press release.
There's more to come though.
This year's festivities include three Great Christmas Villages and a Christmas eve street party along Orchard Road.
The Great Christmas Villages will be located outside:
- Shaw House, from Nov. 24
- Ngee Ann City, from Dec. 8
- Plaza Singapura, from Dec. 1
The village outside Shaw House will feature a double-storey carousel and ferris wheel.
The one outside Ngee Ann City will have a Euro Swing ride, an arcade and food trucks, while the Plaza Singapura instalment will have a giant bouncy castle and balloon dome.
