Orchard Road Christmas light-up on Saturday
Orchard Road, the heart of Spore’s shopping district, will be all decked out for Christmas from Saturday. The Orchard Road Business Association (ORBA) said this year’s design themed bells and baubles will be unveiled in a ceremony officiated by President Tony Tan Keng Yam. On the night of the launch, there will also be 130 student volunteers distributing multi-coloured light sticks to the public. ORBA said it will pledge S$1 to Community Chest for every light stick given out. The light-up is part of ORBA’s annual Christmas on a Great Street, which is also supported by the Singapore Tourism Board. A new app OneOrchard is available on iTunes and Google Play for shoppers to download vouchers and make purchases.
