~ Mid-Autumn Festival - Outdoor lantern displays at Gardens by the Bay ~

I still recall the days when we brought Denver to Chinese Garden to admire the lantern displays. Over the years, we have stopped our visits due to the rising admission price and distance.

Learning that Gardens by the Bay is hosting its very own Mid-Autumn Festival celebration definitely thrills us! Apart from the beautiful lantern displays surrounding the garden, there are cultural performances and activities, fireworks and food stalls. Most importantly, admission is FREE!

It was a breezy evening after the rain. I adore how the gentle glow from the lanterns warm up the garden. My personal favourite would probably be the dragon lantern at Dragonfly Lake.

Spotted the "House of Knowledge" from afar.

It was a pity that some of the constellation lanterns did not lit up during our walk. Probably it was due to the rainy weather earlier that causes the power shortage.

 Other themes of the lantern displays include Jurassic Park, World of Fairy Tales, Birds & Insects Paradise and Local Cultural view.

The various stalls setup at the food street, (near the main stage area) were selling and promoting their delicious desserts and core dishes, attracting a lot of visitors to sample before making their purchases.

Many children were spotted holding their lanterns as families spent the beautiful evening together. The largest and most enchanting display that light up the garden every night would be the SUPERTREES!

The lantern displays will be in the Gardens till 22nd September 2013 (Sunday). Four more days to go to catch them LIVE in 'action'.
