What to do during the Mid-Autumn Festival? Stare at the moon and eat mooncakes? That’s boring, isn’t it?
Gardens by the Bay‘s Mid Autumn Festival 2019 is exactly the type of viewing party that would make you understand why people do boring things like staring at the moon.
It’s not really just about the moon, because just visiting their event page is like Woah.
To show you what I mean,
Mid-Autumn Festival 2019 from 30 Aug to 15 Sep 2019
In various locations in Gardens, there will be specific attractions that depict stories of heritage and tradition. there’s even said to be the tallest and widest display of floating lanterns stretching 120m.
- Date: 30 Aug – 15 Sep
- Time: 7.00pm – 11.00pm
- Venue: Various locations in Gardens by the Bay
If length isn’t what you’re looking for, then maybe you’ll be interested in a giant one. One that you can walk inside—their very first giant revolving lantern.
Creepy black silhouettes aside since it’s the 7th month, that’s pretty cool.
But what other goodies for the eyes do they have?
Well, we’re Singaporean, so naturally, I started with mooncakes and food for the other attractions.
Unfortunately, there’s not much information on this except it’s offering Asian delights at the Supertree Grove.
But I did find this image on DarrenBloggie for the festival in 2016…
We can probably expect the usual good stuff from food fairs until we get more information.
Simi lai eh? I’ll be honest and say, I don’t know either!
Supposedly a 30 sqm gallery that’s constructed with 3D-printed steel, and designed by Assistant Professors Carlos Banon and Felix Raspall.

It’s one of those things that’s cool but you don’t know why it’s cool.
Lest you forget, lanterns are significant during the Mid-Autumn Festival. Why? I don’t know either!
Wah, then we pay you to write articles for what?
Relax, I did my homework and checked, and I quote Wikipedia: “It is difficult to discern the original purpose of lanterns in connection to the festival, but it is certain that lanterns were not used in conjunction with moon-worship prior to the Tang dynasty.”
But what I do know, is that each of these is painted by people, and it’s going to look amazing.
