This year’s Orchard Road Christmas 2009 lighting ceremony is held at Orchard ION. This lighting ceremony has started since 1984 and has been running continuously for 26 years.
This year, 3 iconic mascots are brought back into Orchard Road, namely the snowman in the blue zone, reindeer in the orange zone and Santa Claus in the red zone. If I did not remember wrongly, lighting hours from Mondays to Thursdays and Sundays are from 7pm to 12am. Fridays and Saturdays are from 7pm to 2am. On Christmas eve and New Year eve, the lights will go on from 7pm to 6am the next morning.
We hopped onto the Hippo bus for a 30 minutes tour in Orchard Road after the ceremony.
