The Festival of Lights comes alive at the Gardens with splashes of vibrant colours, fabric lanterns and festive promotions!
From today to 10 November, Gardens by the Bay will see the Flower Dome transformed into a colourful floral tapestry as we celebrate Deepavali – the Festival of Lights!
Inspired by the traditional Indian decorative art kolam, the Deepavali themed floral display features Indian fabric lanterns sitting on a bed of vivid purple and orange flora, made up of flowers like Amaranths, Cone Flowers and Cockscombs, while lamps and carved wooden elephants add to the festive ambience.
This kaleidoscopic display of tradition, colours and lights will bring a befitting close to the “Celebrations!” series of floral displays at the Gardens.
In celebration of Deepavali, there will also be a 15% discount on admission tickets to the conservatories from 1 to 3 November 2013.
On 26 and 27 October, keep an eye out for Celebrating Cultures: The Kathakali Performance, an array of painted faces, sophisticated hand gestures and elaborate costumes accompanied by a “live” ensemble of percussion music and classical singing.
On 2 and 3 November, go on a journey of discovery at the Gardens with You Light Up My Life, a themed activity to educate about the significance of Deepavali, where visitors can try their hand at decorating little lamps specially for the occasion.
