Adopt a Lantern

Recycle. Reuse. Redecorate.

Chinatown Festivals Organising Committee, the organiser for the annual Chinatown Chinese New Year Celebrations and Chinatown Mid-Autumn Festival, has launched the “Adopt a Lantern” campaign since 2014. For this year Chinatown Mid-Autumn Festival Street Light-up, all lanterns in various shape, size and design are available for adoption.

The public may adopt one or more lanterns which they prefer after the festival celebration is over. The adoption is free but the interested party will have to submit an online application and arrange their own transport and manpower to collect the lanterns upon confirmation by the Organiser.

Priority will be given to community organisation, educational institution and voluntary welfare organisation, however, application by individual for decoration of their home and corporation adopting the lanterns to decorate their office or factory premises are also welcome.

One of the main purposes for the adoption exercise is to allow the organisation/ individual who adopted it to share the beautiful lanterns with the community and their family.

While the Organiser recycles the lanterns, the public reuse the lanterns to redecorate their home or organisation premises. This is indeed a great community effort by everyone to promote recycling and being environme
