Image result for mid autumn festival singaporeCredits: goodyfeed.com

If the myriad of mooncake advertisements and lantern decorations going up isn’t a clear indication that the Mid-Autumn Festival is approaching, I don’t know what else is!

Marking the end of the autumn harvest, the Mid-Autumn Festival was traditionally a time to give thanks to the gods. It’s the time of the year where the moon is the brightest, which is also why many lunar legends surround this festival, with the most famous one being the story of Chang Er, the wife of a merciless king who downed the elixir of immortality he had intended to drink, to save her people from his tyrannical rule. After which, she was said to have ascended to the moon, where she was subsequently worshipped as the Moon Goddess.

For the entire month, many organisations across Singapore will be having various Mid-Autumn Celebrations all across Singapore, one of it being the Mid-Autumn @ Gardens By The Bay, where the entire area is transformed into a mythical traditional setting, with dragon lanterns and more! This limited-time exhibition starts from 6 September all the way till 24 September.

To bask in a truly authentic traditional atmosphere, head on over to Chinatown or Chinese Gardens!

 

When: Throughout the month of September (actual festival date is 24 Sept)
