Celebrate Mid-Autumn 2019 with the White Rabbit and Red Queen at VivoCity’s Curious Adventures in Wonderland.
The lunar eight month is nearly upon us. With that, it means three things.
Mooncakes, divine moon goddesses, and cutesy lanterns featuring rabbits and more.
Yes, the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival is coming, and over at VivoCity, celebrations have adopted a western twist with the integration of Alice and friends into the lanterns displays. As in that Alice. You know, the one who tumbled down a hole into Wonderland?
I thought this was creative. Very creative. Alice isn’t a moon goddess, i.e., a western Chang’e by any measure, but magical rabbits do prominently feature in both the classic Chinese Mid-Autumn myth and Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece. VivoCity’s spacious Sky Park has also long proven itself to be the perfect venue for illumination displays.
Just how would the lanterns be when lit?
Well, they are magical! Well-worthy of the Wonderland epithet, when I visited this evening.Before I share my pictures, allow me to highlight these enchanting set pieces were crafted by over 50 artisans. The biggest set soars to an astonishing 10 m height.
