[Event Invite] Singapore’s Longest Fruit Mosaic

Been away for way too long.. so allow me to backtrack a little here.. Went Downtown Gallery for an invited event some time ago (2nd of July) with my girlfriends to witness a record-breaking attempt. In celebration of International Fruits Festival, this attempt was made to set a record for Singapore’s Longest Fruit Mosaic and is done by close to 80 recent graduates from Nanyang Polytechnic, Ngee Ann Polytechnic and Singapore Polytechnic. The massive 200-metres-long fruit mosaic creation were stretched along the entire length of Downtown Gallery, using a mix of red and green apples, lemons and oranges, forming vibrant colours on the road.

Following the event, the fruits are cleaned, repackaged and donated to communities in need, including Kampong Chai Chee Community Club, Bishan Community Club and Hougang Sheng Hong Family Service Centre.




In addition to watching the youths work on the mosaic, the public also joined a part of the record attempt by working on a section of the mosaic designated for the public. Fruit-themed pop-ups were set up by juice bar FRESHE, lifestyle and fitness app GuavaLabs, frozen natural yoghurt store smöoy and gourmet grocer and café THE PROVIDORE at Downtown Gallery Level 1. Complimentary juices, guavas, toppings and ice cream sandwiches were given out to the first 100 consumers who quote “Singapore’s Longest Fruit Mosaic” at any of the pop-ups, making it interesting and fun.




“It’s wonderful to witness an effort by our youths and community, led by Downtown Gallery, to create a new Singapore record,” said Patrina Tan, Senior Vice President of Retail, Marketing and Leasing of OUE Limited. “Downtown Gallery is designed as a place for people to commune, and this local record attempt not only offers consumers a bit of fun and entertainment over the weekend, but is also bringing our youths, families and communities together.”

In line with the URA’s long-term plans of transforming the Downtown Core area into a work-live-play environment, OUE Downtown has undergone major transformation to bring to life the three pillars of ‘Look Well’, ‘Keep Well’ and ‘Eat Well’ within the development. Singapore’s Longest Fruit Mosaic will be the first in a series of themed events and experiences hosted at the new Downtown Gallery to connect with and engage the community.










Open from 10.00 am – 9.00 pm daily, OUE Downtown Gallery is located at 6 Shenton Way. For enquiries and news on the latest events and experiences, please visit http://downtowngallery.com.sg.
