Christmas Wonderland At Gardens By The Bay Starts 29 Nov Till 26 Dec
Christmas Wonderland is returning to Gardens by the Bay.
In a press release, Gardens by the Bay announced that the event will feature 10 new parades, illuminating installations, and entertaining productions from Friday (29 Nov) until 26 Dec.
Here are some things you can look forward to.
Santa’s Workshops & Italian sculptures
Christmas Wonderland will make your holidays’ even brighter thanks to their illuminating light installations and new parades. The Christmas Parade will include festive characters like Santa Claus, dancing elves, reindeer sleighs, and cheeky penguins.
Those who dream of riding a sleigh can enter Santa’s workshop. We’re hoping to catch a ride to the North Pole with the help of reindeers.
There’s no need to visit Italy to witness the splendour of the season.
More than 360,000 bulbs will light up the night sky. Christmas trees, handmade Italian sculptures and classic towers inspired by Tuscany, will delight visitors of all ages.
Garden Rhapsody & Blizzard Time
While we’ve been to Gardens by the Bay numerous times, we bet that Christmas Wonderland will still take your breath away.
The Garden Rhapsody will feature a special light and sound show at the Supertree Grove. Those who are tired of the traditional Christmas tree will definitely marvel at the towering supertrees.
Good ol’ Christmas Carols will be sung at the magical Cassa Armonica gazebo. You can witness the live performances of:
- Inch Chua
- Sam Driscoll
- The Hwa Chong Institution Choir
- The NTU Alumni Choir, and more local musicians.
Blizzards and snow will never make an appearance in sunny Singapore. However, you can witness bits of ‘snow’ falling from the sky during Blizzard Time.
Carnival rides & Christmas train
Christmas Wonderland will have fun and games for kids and adults of all ages.
The carnival will feature 18 traditional carnival games and rides like Mini Viking and Swing Chair Carousel.
Visitors can hop on a bumper car and occasionally bump into their friends and family. Parents may also use this opportunity to teach their kids the basics of driving.
If you ever get fatigued from walking, then ride the Christmas train to view installations from the comfort of your own seat.
Shoppers can visit the whimsical Christmas Village to find crafts and limited-edition food and drinks.
The village’s European-style wooden huts are reminiscent of the structures that you’ll find in the Nordic region. You can browse a total of 24 festive huts to find gifts such as jewellery, bags, and phone covers.
Hungry locals can feast like a king through delicious food from Dessert Wonderland, Fat Belly, Mac Tacos, The Beast, Street Food Circus SG and more.
A meal is more delicious when shared with friends and family so be sure to invite them. Those who are still single AF may unexpectedly meet someone new.
