Diwali Celebration at Gardens by the Bay

Celebration: Deepavali

Unlike Little India where the streets are artfully decorated with an explosion of vibrant, colourful arches and lights, Gardens by the Bay has its own way to celebrate Deepavali – The Festival of Lights. The Flower Field Display is inspired by by the traditional Indian decorative art kolam that features Indian fabric lanterns sitting on a bed of vivid purple and orange flora, made up of flowers like Amaranths, Cone Flowers and Cockscombs, while  carved wooden elephants add to the festive ambiance.
