City Square

Dive into the sea with City Square Mall’s SpongeBob SquarePants playland and show, from 20 Nov 2015 to 3 Jan 2016.

In the live show, SpongeBob prepares to celebrate with the Krabby Patty burger, and everyone is invited to the party! From 5 to 20 Dec (except Mondays), SpongeBob and his best friend Patrick Star will amuse the young ones with their antics.

City Square

The outdoor SpongeBob Playland offers festive fun for the whole family, with SpongeBob’s cosy Pineapple House, his bouncy castle Super Bouncer, train rides, and games and activity stations.

Explore the Christmas market at Santa’s Bazaar, where you can take in the festive goodies and handicrafts, while doing your part for charity.  Don’t miss the light shows and snow play sessions!

Gardens by the Bay: Christmas Wonderland


At 20 metres tall, the Spalliera is the largest Luminarie this year.

The spectacular Supertrees are dazzling in their special Christmas edition of the “Garden Rhapsody” light and sound show, to sounds of familiar Christmas tunes.

Meanwhile, the Luminaries Light Sculptures, handmade from white wood by skilled craftsmen from Italy, cast their colourful light all across Gardens by the Bay – all 56 pieces of them.

Spiegel Tent

Christmas Wonderland includes an European-style festive market with game stalls, a vintage carousel, and funfair rides at Gardens by the Bay.

Snow “blizzards” will also take place at least three times a night, in addition to Christmas parades and choral or theatrical performances.

Tanglin Mall
