From 12 November 2022, the streets of Orchard Road will be illuminated by dazzling arches of lights and enchanting decorations. Expect to get into a festive mood early this year—Visitors to Orchard Road should keep a lookout for a stunning dual-façade augmented reality projection on the walls of the Mandarin Gallery from 1 November 2022. Additionally, Music in the Air will be bringing you carols and Christmas classics along the stretch from ION Orchard to Ngee Ann City, as well as outside Wheelock Place and Far East Shopping Centre. This year, visitors can also enjoy a special visual treat by scanning the key visuals on any of the 27 glass panels located along the entire stretch of Orchard Road between ION Orchard to Mandarin Gallery using the PopAR Live App. Fret not if you find yourself occupied during the festive season—the lights, music and decoration linger until 2 January 2023, giving you ample time to soak in the festive mood.
