VivoCity Presents <Viesta! The New York Edition 2018> - Skate under the Moonlight
Every Christmas, Singaporeans collectively fantasize about the sky glittering with specks of ice crystals, decking the halls with boughs of holly, skating on a frozen lake, and romantic celebrations under the mistletoe.
Here’s the good news - our fantasies are not as divorced from reality as we think. From now till 25 December, VivoCity is hosting its inaugural year-end event dubbed Viesta! The New York Edition 2018 – Skate Under The Moonlight. The event features a slew of fun activities for both young and old, with the highlight of them all – a 350sqm outdoor synthetic skating rink to ensure you don’t miss out on the joy of winter frolicking.
Outdoor skating rink at VivoCity Plaza, Level 1
Yes, VivoCity has heard the nation’s collective FOMO on casual winter activities and have decided to come to our rescue. Inspired by the iconic rink at the Rockefeller Centre in New York, VivoCity has transformed their Outdoor Plaza into a winter wonderland under a canopy of dazzling lights.
The rink is located at Outdoor Plaza, Level 1 of VivoCity.
