Mid-Autumn Festival Celebrations At Gardens By The Bay
Celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival amidst colourful blooms at Gardens by the Bay.
Also known as Mooncake or Lantern Festival, the Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated by the Chinese on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month when the moon is at its fullest and brightest. The Chinese consider the full moon as an auspicious symbol of abundance, harmony and prosperity. This year’s Mid-Autumn Festival falls on 13 September.
From 30 August to 15 September, Gardens by the Bay is showcasing Chinese stories, traditions and practices that have been passed down for generations, through magnificent lantern sets, cultural performances and engaging activities set to its theme of “Legacies”.
