Planning to bring your kids for a lantern walk or immerse yourself in the Mid-Autumn festive mood with a friend? It is always enjoyable to engage in leisure walks with your loved ones, especially with the cool night breeze! Read on as we bring to you 5 Mid-Autumn Festival displays in Singapore PLUS a bonus write up on 5 non-mainstream mooncake deals at the end of it! Here we go!

1. Singapore Discovery Centre

Ever since the beginning of September, Singapore Discovery Centre has been loaded with lots of Mid-Autumn Festival related activities!

Reach there by 1pm, and you can try your hand at making your own Rabbit Lantern or start your Moonwalk Trail activity! At 5pm, head to the concourse and try solving some traditional lantern riddles!

When the sun begins to set, be sure you are at Discovery Lake to watch the lights up for the floating light installation named "Moon Mirror".

Continue to hang around there at Banstand @ Discovery Lake if you are keen to learn all about rabbit, Chang'e and Wu Gang through the Storytelling Lantern Walk.

🎫 Moon Mirrors: Floating light installation

🕒 All day, 6 pm onwards

📍 Discovery Lake

There are other paid activities which might interest you and all the details can be found here!

2. Gardens by the Bay

A display in the hope of bringing good blessings! That's basically one sentence to summarize the Mid-Autumn display at Gardens by the Bay this year.

Featuring sky lanterns (carrying the character 福 (“fu”), which means “prosperity”) floating up the iconic Supertree and animals specially chosen to symbolize good health and longevity.

Another free admission highlight would be AirMesh. It is an architectural structure made of 3D printed components in stainless steel that looks like a tilted box. According to AirLab, it is a reinterpretation of the traditional lantern. Definitely an IG-worthy location!

In partnership with the Embassy of the Republic of Korea and Korea Tourism Organization, are some artistic and historically rich paintings of Korean everyday life in the olden days by artist Kim Hongdo (b. 1745) and Kim Jun-geun (unknown, est. late 19th – early 20th century).

These artist painting are set against brightly lit lantern frames that are shaped in traditional Korean houses, making art appreciation in the dark night easy as well as adding flavour to it.

Wondering why there are 4 large lanterns? Thai artist Boonyavee Boonsakda (Ngaew Ngaew) wishes to present the moment Jade Rabbit (Moon Rabbit) keeps goddess Chang'e company, just like how Moon Rabbit keeps its friends company while they enjoy their mooncakes.

It also has a deeper meaning as it represents our desire to get together and reunite with our loved ones, be it locally or overseas. May we have friends and family like Moon Rabbit who will keep us company this Mid-Autumn festival!
