Pedestrian Night is back on Orchard Road Aug 1

Following its launch from Oct 2014 to March this year, Orchard Road will be closed yet again to all vehicles on Aug 1, from 6:00-11:00pm. This Pedestrian Night event, stretching from Scotts/Paterson Junction to Bideford Junction, will feature a red and white theme (to celebrate Singapore’s Golden Jubilee, of course) with displays journaling Singapore’s history, street busker performances and special shopping deals like $50 buys at Tangs Beauty and Home.

Previous editions have seen tennis matches and mass yoga sessions playing out on the streets, and now you can look forward to a bespoke art showcase by local talents such as illustrator Ee Shaun, a 2011 Sovereign Prize recipent who has done works for brands like Adidas, Nike, Disney and Facebook. Not quite as exciting as previous editions, but we’re glad they’ve brought a dose of culture to this shopping belt.
