Pedestrian Night On Orchard Road is Back on July till Dec 2015!

| |
Hi Huneybees,

How was your Great Singapore Sales haul coming along? Last weekend, it was amazing shopping fun when we all shopped amongst great music, performance fun! Were you there for the Pedestrian Night On Orchard Road?

This monthly event was back after a two month break and this time with a vengeance plus an extension till December 2015! Shout "Woohoo!" with me to more great shopping fun and deals!

What is the Pedestrian Night all about?
You do not know what you have been missing if you have not attended one before, my huneybees! On the first Saturday evening of every month, the stretch from ION Orchard (Scotts Road) to Paragon (Bideford Junction) will be closed for all traffic, from 6pm to 11pm, and shoppers are free to roam onto the streets! Of course, these Pedestrian Nights are all specially planned with a specific theme every month. And with this comeback, starting from July till December, Orchard Road is yet again transformed into playground for all!

For July, in conjunction with Great Singapore Sale (GSS), it was a tie up with the Orchard Road retail stores for in-mall shopping activities, special deals and contests, on top of an array of bustling activities one would never expect to see on the streets of the iconic shopping boulevard.

Were you there? Did you catch all the activities? Here's a recap of the wonderful night!

Flame of the Forest, a homegrown Instrumental / Fusion band, performed LIVE and also celebrated the launch of their debut EP Album launch. Though it was sweltering hot, hot weather that evening, I couldn't help dancing to their great songs!

Along with that, there were also buskers performances along the whole stretch, the kids were definitely kept entertained whilst mothers did their shoppings! There was balloon sculpturing, wire name twisting crafts along with singing and dancing. *No clowning around though*
I think the biggest shopping event for the night has to be at the long time historic local retailer - TANGS. Shopping hours were extended to 11pm that night with The A-list shopping Party for the public to join the A-Listers for a night of shopping and exciting activities, such as pop-up barber (Wah! Shop, shop, also can style hair leh~), sneaker tagging, and Temporary Jewelry Tattoo.

Wefies and selfies were sending cameras clicking non-stop at the free instant photo booth. Why? Coz, there was a chance to win one of three Capisco Puls chairs worth $1299 each, for the first 1000 shoppers. Of course, we had to join in the Singapore spirit and I heard queues started even before the roads were sealed!

And speaking of great deals, shoppers at Metro Paragon also received a $10 Metro Gift Voucher with minimum $100 purchase in a single receipt while enjoying saving up to 50% at its Shoes & Bags Fair.

But I really bagged it big at the Wing Tai Stores - Miss Selfridge, Topshop, Warehouse, Ben Sherman, etc. All those pieces I had been drooling over, were all snagged up by me coz I simply couldn't resist the fabulous saving of additional 15% off on top of the 50% discount on selected pieces!!!

Envy? Well, you better be there for next month's Pedestrian Night On Orchard Road coz we will be all decked in red and white for Singapore's Golden Jubilee on 1 August 2015. Themed as SG50 "Red and White" Party, Orchard Road will be celebrating Singapore's pioneers, stories and national milestones from 1965 to current day through the Pioneer Portraits Initiative. Come walk down Singapore's memory lane through a visual tour of the arts...

The rest of the month's Pedestrian Night On Orchard Road will also feature:
  • 5 September 2015: Rev-up on Orchard (Fast and furious shopping fun as F1 roars through the night)
  • 3 October 2015: Family Fiesta (Expect a carnival of activities for the entire family)
  • 7 November 2015: Fashion with Friends and Family (Time to style yourself up and take your best shot!)
  • 5 December 2015:  Christmas on A Great Street (Immerse yourself in the sea of bright and tinkering festive lights).

Thanks to the great team behind the Pedestrian Night On Orchard Road! I can't wait to be there for more of these nights! Thank you to organizers - Orchard Road Business Association (ORBA) and Singapore Tourism Board (STB) for working tirelessly behind-the-scenes to ensure that the whole fanfair went smoothly and safely.

See you there next month! :)
