Head Down to VivoCity for A Celebration of Togetherness this Mid-Autumn Festival!
31 August 2012, Singapore – Singapore’s largest retail and lifestyle destination, VivoCity, will usher in the spirit of togetherness this Mid-Autumn Festival with a buzz of activities in store for shoppers from 31 August to 30 September. Continuing its tradition of celebrating the festival with a record-breaking event, VivoCity will bring its shoppers together on 29 September to set a new record with The Largest Display of Floating Lanterns in the Singapore Book of Records.
To be held at the Amphitheatre on Level 3, the event involves our shoppers releasing lit lanterns onto our wading pool, creating a captivating display of floating lanterns. Shoppers can participate in the record-breaking event by registering their interest at any Customer Service Counter between 31 August and 29 September.
The first 1,500 participants with an entry pass will each receive a goodie bag consisting of a lantern and shopping vouchers on the day of the event. Participants will be entertained by performers from the National Arts Council and they also stand to win prizes worth more than $15,000 during the lucky draw on the day of the event.
“We will be celebrating our 6th Mid-Autumn Festival this year and will stay true to our tradition of bringing shoppers and their families together for our signature record-breaking feat. With a truly unique venue of the Amphitheatre and the wading pools, we are excited to see the festival being brought to life through the floating lanterns, lights and most importantly, the camaraderie amongst all involved in the celebrations,” said Mr Chang Yeng Cheong, Deputy Head, Marketing Communications.
