Part 1: Ceremonial Kick-Off
Stars of Christmas 2019 kicked off with the ceremonial hanging of Christmas stars at the lobby of Mandarin Orchard Singapore on 21 November.

The children will be treated to an afternoon of entertainment and a scrumptious yuletide feast—ending on a merry note with Santa and his helpers giving out Christmas presents.

Stars of Christmas 2019 culminates in a Toy Run activity on the morning of 14 December, with volunteer riders on a fleet of Harley-Davidson motorcycles making for a festive spectacle on the Orchard Road frontage of Mandarin Gallery as they set off to deliver Christmas presents to various locations.
