Ever reminisce the time where people used to come together in a park to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival? Now you are able to relive those moments at Gardens by the Bay.
From 3rd to 18th September, 7pm to 11pm, the Gardens come alive with its dazzling display of spectacularly lit handcrafted lantern sets that bring to life Asian stories of the Moon. There’s no better place to feel the whole festive mood than here at Gardens By The Bay.
You are able to experience the Mid-Autumn Festival in a whole new light as Gardens By The Bay celebrates the lantern festival with a fusion of the traditional tales and activities accompanied with the modernity of huge-scale handcrafted lantern sets.
Along with some of our InstaBabes, we visited Gardens by the Bay to check out the Mid-Autumn display. Here are some of the photos we took.
Furthermore, be sure not to miss out the Ron Arad’s 720°, this spectacular display. Brought in by the Singapore International Festival of Arts, the immersive multimedia installation makes its debut this year. It features projected imagery and videos that will dazzle your mind.

In addition to that, there are other highlights all around the gardens too. They include nightly performances in collaboration with the National Arts Council, cultural activities and craft booths that get you participating into the whole Mid-Autumn festive spirit. Food street which serves a wide variety of delectable treats will also be available in the garden.
During our walk in the garden, we saw a huge crowd that was gathering around one of the booths. It caught our attention and we decided to take a look at what’s happening. It turns out to be a riddle guessing game that is a tradition in this festival. Lantern Riddles is one of the activities that is well received by the visitors. It definitely brings up the whole Mid- Autumn festive spirit of celebrating together.
Lastly, we have the Flower Dome. Do check out their upcoming annual Mid-Autumn Flower Dome design that will sure to bring you in awe. Last year, different types of Chrysanthemums were dabbled across the field. You are able to view the types of Chrysanthemums in the world that you never knew existed!
