Light displays, a food street and cultural performances are just some of what visitors can expect at Gardens by The Bay’s Mid-Autumn festivities from Sep 15 to Oct 1.

The event, titled Garden of Blooms, will be held in various parts of Gardens by The Bay. This includes the Supertree Grove, Dragonfly Lake and floral clock.

A lantern walk is one of the highlights of the event held on Sep 15. Visitors can redeem a free lantern – while stocks last – and stroll down the gardens. Lantern collection begins at 7pm, while the walk starts at 7.15pm.

There will also be a food street set up throughout the duration of the event, with cuisines from countries like Taiwan and Thailand. Visitors can also expect to participate in carnival games and rides in the Supertree Grove.

A variety of musical and dance performances will also take place in the Supertree Grove.

This includes multi-ethnic music group yIN Harmony, string instrument players Two Four Six Fusion and Wu Yue Dance Studio Arts Troupe. They will each perform on Sep 16, 22 and 23 respectively for 30-minute intervals from 7pm to 8.30pm.

Interested participants can also attend paid workshops for lantern making and tea appreciation.

The lantern-making workshop will be held from Sep 15 to 17 and Sep 24 to Oct 1, with the choice of three time slots – 6.30pm, 7.30pm and 8.30pm. Each entry charge is priced at $15.

For $18, attendees for the tea appreciation workshop will learn about the traditional Chinese tea art ceremony and brewing techniques. Each tea set allows a maximum of three people to share. Registrations are required to attend each paid workshop.

It will be held at 6.30pm, 7.30pm and 8.30pm, from Sep 15 to 17 and Sep 24 to Oct 1.
