Silver bells, silver bells, it’s Christmas time in the city. Well, to be more specific, Suntec City. The shopping mall has its halls decked with more than just a few boughs of holly.
’Tis the season to be jolly after all, so it’s not just the usual ornaments and sparkling lights to look forward to. This year, there’s a carnival, light installations, a digital art exhibition, and workshops to attend if your calendar’s wide open. Happening from now till 25th December, here’s the low-down on what to expect:
Tiny tots, with their eyes all aglow, are going to find it hard to sleep at all once they hear that there’s a Festive Carnival happening at Suntec City.
Young and old alike will find that the carnival has thrills for all ages, with old-school rides like the grand carousel and spinning meteorite. There’s even a bouncy castle up at the Sky Garden for those ready to jump for joy over the fact that Christmas is in just about a month away.
The carnival will, of course, feature classic game booths as well. Chalk it up to sheer luck or pure skill when you play rounds of snowball toss or presents smash. Either way, prizes like plushies are yours to take home whenever you score.
You can get your tickets to the Fun In The City at the Suntec Plaza itself. Rides and games start from $25.
While you’re making memories at the carnival, don’t forget to capture them too. Give the next posts on your socials a pop of colour when you pose for pics at the light installations at the Sky Garden.
Light installations aside, you won’t want to miss out on this year’s Christmas decorations for your holiday pictures as well.
For one, there’s a 15m-tall bedazzled tree at the Plaza for the family to take portraits with for that Hallmark card moment – so jio the motley crew down for some snazzy year-end snaps.
It doesn’t matter if you’re on the naughty or nice list, you’ll be able to snag carnival credits, wrapping paper and stickers to decorate your gifts when you spend $80 at Suntec City. You’ll be able to get a cashback of $10 in e-Vouchers when you up your spending to $220. Plus, you’ll even get free credits to be used at the Festive Carnival.
There are more e-Vouchers to get your hands on come Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Between 23rd and 28th November, you can purchase $110 worth of Suntec City e-Vouchers at just $100. Use these to offset your Christmas shopping for the year.
There’s more Christmas cheer to come in the upcoming weeks from 9th-25th December 2022. Buskers will be taking to the streets at the Suntec Plaza on Fridays and Saturdays. They’ll be belting out your fave tunes that will get you rockin’ around the Christmas tree.
Look out for an NFT Digital Art Exhibition happening at the same time too. Digital pieces from renowned NFT projects will be displayed at the Atrium at Tower 1 and 2. If you know a crypto bro, get them tickets to the art workshops at $39/pax (U.P. $80), where they’ll be able to print their masterpieces onto merch like tote bags.
With a plethora of events like carnival games and rides, and tonnes of photo ops, you’re bound to have yourself a merry little Christmas at Suntec City this year.
