Pedestrian Night at Orchard Road: Now on till Dec 2015!

Tuesday, 7 July 2015

Woohoo! I visited Orchard Road with JiahuiHannahYueqi and a few other bloggers on the first Saturday of July for the Pedestrian Night (乌节路步行街之夜).

People teeming the streets!

MISSED THE JULY PEDESTRIAN NIGHT?

If you missed the July one, don't worry! Pedestrian night will be held every first Saturday of every month from July to December 2015!



What is the Pedestrian Night, you ask?
Spearheaded by Orchard Road Business Association (ORBA) and supported by Singapore Tourism Board (STB), this initiative aims to inject street vibrancy into the precinct by creating an integrated community space with activities such as street tennis and mass yoga for all to enjoy.

Talented street buskers, balloon sculptors plied the street.


There was also a HAG Photo Booth for people to take photos and stand a chance to win one of the three HAG Capisco Puls chairs worth $1299 each.




Me with a white designer chair, known as Chairs in Squares. Designed specially for people to relax, unwind and enjoy the outdoors. The project is part of the URA's PubliCity programme to create a more lively and active public space.

The Barclays Asia Trophy on display! 

Took a photo with it, but not showing it here! haha.

We also saw Flame of the Forest (FOTF) preparing to perform their tunes to a huge crowd who was already patiently waiting!
