It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like X'mas At Gardens By The Bay, With Its Pretty Lights And Outdoor Rink

Tis’ the season to be jolly! Actually, not really. Not yet. Not till December. However, this doesn’t stop shopping malls from blasting Christmas music and hanging up the Christmas decorations.

But we digress. This December, Singapore’s biggest Christmas event, Christmas Wonderland, is back for its fourth iteration, this time with new highlights to get everyone immersed in the festive mood!

Occupying the 57,000 sqm are new attractions such as an outdoor skating rink, Ethiopian circus acts, Santa’s Grotto, and a food market lined with food from acclaimed restaurants.

Visitors can also expect the usual attractions like the stunning light installations, carnival rides, and caroling choirs.

It’s The Most Wonderful Fair Of The Year

Look forward to skating in the festival’s first ever outdoor skating rink at The Meadow. You’ll get to skate past the intricate and stunning light sculptures that line the fairground!
