A Sparkling Christmas at Paragon

Singapore, 16 November 2010 – This Christmas, Paragon will be offering a range of privileges and rewards to create a memorable shopping experience for shoppers.

a) Vote for Paragon in the Best Dressed Building Contest

    Paragon’s main entrance will be decked with a 40-foot Christmas tree to create a festive mood and photo opportunities for its shoppers. The tree is decorated using shiny metallic materials of gold and bronze – the colour theme for this year. While maximising the glittering effect in the day and night, these highly reflective decorative ornaments also help to cut down on energy usage as fewer fairy lights are needed.

    Inside the mall, shoppers will be enthralled with larger-than-life gold baubles that are suspended in the air to look like urban sculptures. These baubles are complemented by thousands of gold confetti cascading from the top of the ceiling, captivating shoppers visually on every level.


    From 20 November to 5 December 2010, shoppers can vote for Paragon in the Best Dressed Building contest as part of the Christmas Light-Up @ Orchard 2010, and stand to win attractive prizes. To vote:

    1 <OR> space <Paragon> space <NRIC> space <Full Name> to 79797.

    The winners will be decided by public SMS voting (25 per cent) and judging from a panel (75 per cent) appointed by the organiser, Orchard Road Business Association (ORBA). The results will be announced on Friday, 17 December 2010, in The Straits Times.
    1Each SMS costs 30cents and will be charged to the participant’s mobile phone bill. All SMS entries must be received before 11.59pm on 5 December 2010. Other terms and conditions apply. Please refer to for more details.
