The annual Gardens by the Bay’s Mid-Autumn Festival 2019 pays tribute to Chinese folklore, traditions and practices with brand new lantern concepts. You can expect enthralling display of 14 lantern sets across the gardens.
Lattice of Lights

Chinese Classic Stories
Most of us are familiar with Chinese porcelain wares. These Chinese porcelain vase lanterns which draw reference from the patterns of a 600-year-old Imperial Ming vase feature the 12 Chinese zodiac animals.

Giant Revolving Lantern
The highlight of this year is the Giant Revolving Lantern. Measuring 30 metres in diameter and wrapped around a Supertree, this lantern set is a reimagining of the traditional “Zou Ma Deng”.
This set offer an immersive experience for visitors, as they can walk through the lantern set to see the story of Chang E and Hou Yi unfolding on the panels.
