A Heartland Christmas
For the first time ever, Marine Parade will host a heartland Christmas light-up celebration entitled “Christmas ‘round the Corner”. The event which is aimed at bringing communities and families together to celebrate this joyous season will run from 30 November 2012 to 6 January 2013.
A community project led by Faith Community Baptist Church (FCBC) and co-organized by the Marine Parade Merchants’ Association (MPMA), Christmas ‘round the Corner will present an iconic novel Christmas experience this year in the city’s prominent heartland, Marine Parade Central.
Centering on the theme of silver and blue, the area will be replete with decorations with a focus on the motif of snowflakes to present a sleek and modern Christmas for the district. Streets will be adorned with zigzagged twinkling lights, while buzzing roads along Marine Parade and Marine Parade Central will be decked out in regal Christmas decorations. A dazzling 30-foot Christmas tree will adorn the celebrations in addition to the newly renovated Marine Parade hawker centre which will also be decked out in Christmas holly wreaths.
Adding to the festive atmosphere is a Christmas village bazaar with many festive offerings such as chocolates, candies, charity booths and even free instant prints at a specially customised Christmas photo wall. Christmas mascots will be giving out sweets and candies to spread the festive cheer while roving carollers will belt out captivating Christmas tunes. Shoppers can also take advantage of the many great Christmas discounts offered by the Marine Parade merchants only available during this festive season.
This is the first-ever large-scale Christmas celebration that Marine Parade has ever hosted. Main organiser, FCBC hopes to create a celebratory Christmas atmosphere and present an iconic event in Marine Parade for all to enjoy.
