VivoCity’s Growing Christmas Tree - Another Year Older, Another Foot Taller
VivoCity’s gigantic Christmas Tree at the Sky Park, now standing at 107 feet tall is an annual centrepiece that has grown a foot every year since 2007, signifying VivoCity’s ever-growing joy and celebration of the festive season. In 2009, at 103 feet tall, this Christmas tree was the tallest in Singapore, as certified by The Singapore Book of Records. This year, the height of the tree is taller than ever and especially significant, as the 107-feet milestone coincides with VivoCity's 7th anniversary. At the foot of the tree standing-guard is a giant reindeer. This statuesque creature is mysteriously masked, reminiscent of the Venetian masquerade ball and alluding to this year’s Christmas theme, ‘A Whimsical Christmas at VivoCity’.
VivoCity’s 7th Anniversary Celebrations & Fireworks
Be treated to a stunning display of fireworks in celebration of VivoCity’s 7th Anniversary. This year’s spectacle is choreographed by Japan’s renowned Josh Tamaya from Tamaya Kitahara Fireworks Co., Ltd., best known for using advanced computerised firing systems and flawless integration of music into fireworks. This highly anticipated tradition will once again light up the HarbourFront precinct and night sky, for an eight-minute dazzling display of vivid colour, energy and vitality that is sure to impress.
