Lantern Festival 2007, Chinatown

"The celebration of Mid-Autumn Festival is a Chinese traditional where families gather for reunions at a time when the moon is at its fullest and brightest, enjoying mooncakes and pamelos with a cup of fragrant tea. The Festival celebrates the legend of Chang Er, the lady of the Moon, who is believed to have floated to the moon after swallowing the elixir of eternal life. From 8th – 30th September, colourful lanterns will frame the streets of Chinatown and Singapore River, complemented by spectacular festive lighting and street bazaars."
