Summertime in the Park at OC

Hi guys! I'm back to share my second part of Orchard Central's Summertime in the Park Carnival adventures with you. In my previous OC post, the focus was on fashion and homeware. This post will be all about food, art, local music bands and exclusive shopping discounts.

What's a carnival without some good ol' popcorn and candy floss?

You will be spoilt for choices with food vendors such as indie bistro food chain Real food, cold-pressed HIC Juice and a regular favourite ShiokJapan! which offers the delicious Japanese confectionary that all of us heart so much.

If you haven't try Jaga Pokkuru by Potato Farm, you need to get your hands on them. They are undoubtedly the best potato sticks ever. This delicacy, made of only Hokkaido potatoes and Saroma lake salt is so rare and precious that you can find it as a game prize at a claw crane arcade game in Japan. It's also always sold out at Japan airports and even if it's available, it's limited to 3 boxes per boarding pass.

Imagine your loved ones receiving an intricate handmade card with a cool 3D design popping up in their faces! A delightful surprise I would love for my friends. Paper Therapy is always coming up with interesting card designs to celebrate different and special occasions by using the highest paper grade from Japan and combining the art of Origami and Kiragami.

These vintage cars are seriously gorgeous and make for really good IG photos.

I was introduced to Tea Ideas few months ago and being a frequent tea drinker, I haven't found anything as good as their Chocolate tea and Cha-ppucino - green tea latte. On top of the green tea benefits we already know, this tea's benefits also include repairing muscles tissues, energizing them and increasing endurance, which is also a reason why this tea is a popular favorite among the current SEA Games athletes.

Their chocolate tea has the taste of black tea and the fragrance of chocolate. It doesn't taste weird or funny so you will definitely enjoy this gourmet tea.

HIC Juice offers organic, cold-pressed juices in many different flavors. Definitely a better alternative to soft drinks in this erratic weather.

Experience and enjoy live band performances and fresh vibes by local bands and artists on top of all the shopping.

Babushka is a trio playing original instrumental jazz, folk and world music.

Deon Toh produces tunes that are relatable with a focus of alternative folk-rock.

Monster Cat creates songs of lush, melodic rock tunes, hoping to stir people's emotions and souls. 

Charles Jedidiah is a multi instrumental folk artist who has been performing music through parts of Australia, Singapore, France and China.

With a touch of funk, Indie/Alternative rock band Stopgap delivers upbeat and energetic tunes.

Gareth Fernandez gets you grooving to his Pop/Soul songs.

These amazing local bands and artists had great music performances last week and for this weekend, it will be 10 Square performing at 3pm, 5pm and 8pm.

There will be a second installment sale extravaganza with new stalls such as Dean & Deluca and The Hunters' Kitchenette from 19th June to 9 July. Check out the various in-store tenants' promotions for bargains and attractive dining deals at Orchard Central besides shopping at the carnival.

For wellbeing, enjoy 50% off for 5 sessions of Refresh Spa Facial at $240 (U.P $490) at Epi Treatz. Haach is also offering facial and relaxing massages at $50 for both ladies and gentlemen each.

For fashion, there's up to 50% major discounts going on at IN CLUB, Levi'®, SABRINAGOH, Stara Bridal & Gowns, T.M.Lewin, Vivien Design and WHATHEWANTS.
