On Friday 13th September night, I went down to visit Mid Autumn Festival at Gardens By The Bay, I had a fun time photographing the lanterns and light up from the Meadow to the other end of the Dragonfly Lake. The lanterns and light up were combinations of different themes, from Jurassic Park and World of Fairy Tales. I loved the Jurassic Park theme lanterns especially the Green T-Rex! There were also lanterns showcasing our multi-cultural society in Singapore at the Meadow area! Walk along the Dragonfly lake towards the Dragonfly Bridge, you can’t miss the floating Ancient Chinese Palace! Continue walking towards the Dome, you will be to spot the beautiful and elegant Sky Lanterns! There are a lot more different lanterns on display at Gardens By The Bay!
