Right, time for a short photo post.

It’s October and as far as the Singaporean festive calendar is concerned, it’s time to enjoy the twinkling lights, i.e., festive light-up at Little India, yeah?

Like the case for Mid-Autumn, this celebration wasn’t cancelled, thank goodness, though it’s subtly smaller in scale.

And while much of Serangoon Road is now alive with glowing colours and Rangoli patterns to celebrate the Festival of Lights, the festive market at Campbell Lane is less bustling. The junction of Serangoon Road and Sungei Road/Bukit Timah Road is also missing towering mascots this year.

But, like I’ve highlighted several times on this blog, there’s “at least something” to enjoy. There are also various online and offline events scheduled. Do check these out at the official Singapore Deepavali 2020 page.

Welcoming the Festival of Lights, 2020

Like I mentioned above, there are no “mascots” this year at the start of the festive light-up. (One of last year’s peacocks is still there, though, when I visited. Albeit unlit). The showpiece is thus the elaborate “gateway” right beside Tekka Market.

Close-up of the gateway. I think that is Goddess Lakshmi seated there, overlooking the celebrations.

At the right spots, the tunnel of lights surrounding Serangoon Road is as mesmerising as ever.

The food stalls and festive decoration outlets at Campbell Lane aren’t entirely gone too. Just fewer. (In a way, making it easier to walk down the alley too)

I took this shot near Great World City. Notice that the goddess makes a second appearance further up the road.

Further up the road, this gorgeous showpiece allows visitors plenty of close-up selfie opportunities.

Another look at the gorgeous tunnel of lights. This time, after the sun is almost completely down.
