Gardens By The Bay Mid-Autumn Lantern Displays

Gardens By The Bay Mid-Autumn Lantern Displays.

A much-anticipated event in the Gardens’ calendar, Mid-Autumn at Gardens by the Bay draws visitors with its large-scale lantern displays and myriad festivities amidst a lush garden setting; with lantern sets symbolic of bountiful harvests and good fortune, nightly cultural performances, a food street featuring Asian delights, and craft booths offering activities like lantern decorating, umbrella painting and Chinese knotting. Take a stroll through the outdoor gardens where sprawling lantern sets bring to life scenes of bountiful harvests and abundance. Don’t miss “Waters of Prosperity”, the largest lantern display created by the Gardens to date. Spanning an area of 1,250 square metres over water, this lantern set portrays a fishing village teeming with 70 carp-shaped lanterns. Other highlights include “Grains of Gold”, a paddy field illuminated with 4,000 glowing rice stalks; “Splendour of Blooms” featuring some 250 waterlily-shaped lanterns floating on the lake; and “Flight of the Dragonflies” with more than 100 dragonfly-shaped lanterns adorning the Supertrees. The lanterns dotting the outdoor gardens continue inside Flower Dome as part of the “Autumn Harvest” floral display; look out for a plethora of fruit and vegetable-shaped lanterns, including a giant pumpkin-shaped lantern. There is a special Mid-Autumn edition of the Garden Rhapsody, which will showcase spectacular lights and feature a medley of popular tunes that revolve around the moon, such as the jazz favourite ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ and the Chinese classic ‘The Moon Represents my Heart.’ Immerse yourself in a breathtaking concoction of dancing lights from the Supertrees and evocative soundtracks beneath the gentle glow of the moon. Most of the events highlights are on display till 8 October 2017, except the Garden Rhapsody, which goes on till 31 October with two shows at 7.45pm and 8.45pm.
