Mid Autumn Festival @ Gardens by the Bay

September 15 - October 3

Gardens by the Bay

Based on the theme of ‘Blessings’ (祈福), lantern displays invoke good health and better days ahead.

Highlights :

Traditionally, people penned wishes on sky lanterns and released them into the skies, hoping for good blessings. Sky Lanterns ‘float’ up a Supertree against a scenic mountainous backdrop, as a pair of rabbits release one marked with the Chinese character 福 (“fu”) – which means “prosperity”.  Accompanying the rabbits are the symbolic deer and cranes. Legends tell of deer guarding the sacred fungus of immortality together with a crane. Pine trees and cranes, paired together, also symbolise good health and longevity.

The Rabbits Forest featuring rabbit lanterns in the Flower Dome.

The rabbit is often associated with wisdom and represents selflessness, piety and sacrifice. Inspired by an ancient Chinese folk game – blessings upon the one who meets a rabbit – the first person to find a rabbit in the Osmanthus tree forest is thought to receive good blessings. Children can try to be the first to spot the Jade Rabbit and receive good blessings.
