Last year I enjoyed this festival a lot at it's location on the river along Clarke Quay.
I had read though that in the past, the festival had been held @ Chinese Garden and that seemed like such a romantic backdrop for it! So you can imagine how excited I was to learn that this year the Lantern Festival is back @ Chinese Garden.
And indeed: it is gorgeous!
The theme is The World of Legends and sunday (the 18th) is the last day you can admire the Lantern Festival @ Chinese Garden.
There are performances too. It is special to walk through the gardens at night, surrounded by lights and people.

|This display is in the water and it is huge!|
|This one is surrounded by water too, and the fish spits water.|
|The Pagoda looks different then usually (during the day). The lanterns and lighting give it a soft, pink look.|
|The Chinese Zodiac can not be missed, ofcourse.|
|Like this Horse.|
|And the Monkey (me;-))|
|And the Dog.|
|Many people walked around with lanterns. Young and old, locals and Ang Moh's. There are free lanterns available.|
|At one point it started to rain and drizzle, so people sheltered for a while.|
