From July - December 2015, a section of Orchard Road will be a temporary pedestrian street between Scotts Paterson Junction and Bideford Junction, every first Saturday night of each month, from 6pm -11pm.
Known as Pedestrian Night on Orchard Road, the extension of the six-month pilot initiative aims to inject street vibrancy into the precinct by creating an integrated community space with street activities.
The pilot Pedestrian Night has been successful in garnering public interest and enhancing Orchard Road’s street vibrancy and will be extended from July - December 2015. For the extension, the buzz will extend beyond the street and visitors can look forward to different themes, in-mall activities, special promotions and contests. Visitors can also participate in our monthly photo contests on Instagram/Facebook and stand a chance to win attractive prizes!
The initiative is spearheaded by Orchard Road Business Association (ORBA) and supported by Singapore Tourism Board (STB).
Here are many photos taken at the Pedestrian Night I went on 4 July!
