The fourth edition of Christmas Wonderland, Singapore’s biggest annual yuletide fair, welcomes all visitors from today till 26 December, from 4pm to 11pm daily at Gardens by the Bay.
Organised by Blue Sky Events, visitors can look forward to being dazzled by picturesque luminaire light sculptures, brand new attractions, yuletide activities, as well as retail and dining options across the 57,000sqm festival ground.
The magnificent luminaire – sculptures of light, a mainstay of the event, will feature 80 handcrafted light sculptures with brand new designs at this year’s Christmas Wonderland. For the first time, the event will feature a 13m tall Christmas ‘tree’ as well as the tallest luminaire in Southeast Asia, the Spalliera. Here, visitors can experience ‘snow’ in the tropics with the nightly Blizzard Time, which has been increased from three to five sessions daily due to its overwhelming popularity.
Surrounded by luminous light sculptures, visitors can skate under the stars at Singapore’s largest outdoor skating rink at the event. Unforgettable treats await – the highly-acclaimed Circus Abyssinia from Ethiopia makes its Asian premiere with gravity-defying stunts and astounding acrobatics. Flying reindeers amid a starry nightscape and stunning photo installations greet visitors as they step into Asia’s largest Santa’s Grotto. Over 100 prizes will be given away daily and one lucky winner will win the grand prize of a trip to Lapland, Finland.
Food aficionados can head to SAVOUR for celebrity chef creations priced from SGD6 from award-winning restaurants and dine alfresco under the twinkling lights or in air-conditioned Snow Globes, a first at Christmas Wonderland. Diners can also head to the Finest Wine Market where over 130 types of wines from around the world await.
A treasure trove of activities, treats and gifting gems are in store at the Supertree Grove. Free Festive Workshops and more retail options are available for the first time at the all-new Mistletoe Alley, whilst the European-style Festive Market offers unique ready- made gifts and a wide variety of culinary offerings. Visitors can also enjoy Christmas carols and live performances at the magical Cassa Armonica gazebo, or sing along to popular yuletide tunes with the Garden Rhapsody: Christmas Edition light show. Traditional carnival games and kiddie rides, including the classic Carousel and swinging chairs, are also available at the Fairground.
