Merlion’s 40th Birthday

After months of facelift, the Merlion, an iconic tourism mascot celebrates her 40th birthday. To mark the occasion, it has been carefully restored and now reopens to the public with a spectacular show for the period of the week from 12 to 16 September 2012.

Its name combines “mer” meaning the sea and “lion“. The fish body represents Singapore’s origin as a fishing village when it was called Temasek

A special installation titled Merlion & I: An Inspiring Journey to commemorate the event.

This 7-minute display of dazzling light projections, sound, dance and pyrotechnics traces the journey of the Merlion to show how this well-loved icon has evolved to inspire generations of Singaporeans and visitors alike. I’ll let these photos do the talking.

Do catch it at Merlion park. Singapore
