Event: Orchard Road Flash Sales Pedestrian Night

Hello people!

Every first Saturday of the month, Orchard Road will be closed for Pedestrian Night from 6pm to 11pm.

Pedestrians are free to roam the streets that were previously occupied by vehicles and take part in exciting street activities.

Pedestrian Night is organized by Orchard Road Business Association (ORBA) and supported by Singapore Tourism Board (STB). Every month, there is a different theme to look forward to.

For July, the theme was 'Orchard Road Flash Sales' so... shopaholics rejoice!

I attended my first Pedestrian Night, thanks to an invitation by blogger friends Danessa and Alvin.

Danessa was all ready to run to Sundown Marathon after 'warming up' at Pedestrian Night. Talk about killing 2 events with one stone!

So what did we see along Orchard Road?

1. Football tricks

Pictures don't do justice to this guy's football tricks so I had to take a video.

2. Balloon Artists

The balloon artists were practically surrounded by kids who were ecstatic to receive free balloon animals.

3. Singing Buskers

Entertaining passerbys with their soothing voices, pro guitar skills and medley of popular songs.

4. Flame of the Forest

Flame of the Forest was present to perform some original songs from their debut album and I was glad I got to catch their performance!

5. Shopping deals

It was a joyous day for shopaholics who could shop till they drop with huge discounts from their favourite brands.

Imagine discounts of up to 50% off + additional 15% off total bill for participating Wing Tai brands such as G2000, Dorothy Perkins, Topshop etc. Oh yes, and extended shopping hours too!

If you've missed July's Pedestrian Night, fret not. There's more Pedestrian Nights to come and they seemed to get increasingly exciting.

Here's what to expect in the coming months:

1 August 2015 - SG50 'Red and White' Party (think National Day)

5 September 2015 - Rev-up on Orchard (think F1 Fast & Furious)

3 October 2015 - Family Fiesta (think Family Day Carnival)

7 November 2015 - Fashion with Friends and Family (think Fashion Show)

5 December 2015 - Christmas on a Great Street (think 'tis the season to be jolly')

Excited already? Time to jio your family and friends to join you for the next Pedestrian Night. And... see you on the streets! :D
