From Nov 11 to Jan 1, the shopping belt will be awash in hues of silver and white, and touches of purple and blue, with interactive streetside installations and a 16m-tall main arch, the tallest at a Christmas light-up so far. This year’s light-up stretches for 2.88km, from Tanglin Mall to Plaza Singapura (including Scotts Road). Putting up the decorations took a total of 15,120 man-hours.
