Celebrating the Joyous Moments of Togetherness and Welcoming a Better Tomorrow
This 5th year of the Lantern Festival is more meaningful and precious for the community and visitors to Macau to get together and celebrate the National Day and Mid-Autumn Festival. Led by renowned architect and artist Carlos Marreiros, the 5th Macau International Lantern Festival is comprised of over 20 monumental and illuminative lantern sculptures themed as “Tomorrow Will be Better” and “Happy All Together”. It includes classic retro toy lanterns that symbolise "embracing the beauty of yesterday, welcoming a more prosperous future" together with butterfly and hot air balloon lantern sculptures that symbolise “harmonious joy and fortune”.
On the Waterfront Promenade of One Central Macau, there are 6 giant luminous lantern sculptures shaped in classic retro toys entitled “Happy Together: Macau Lights Up in Joy and Hope” shining the city with childlike happiness, standing on the threshold of a more brilliant future with the community. Classic retro toys are chosen to represent the bright future that childhood sweetly packed. The series of lanterns, such as ‘Happy Clown Toy’, ‘Robot Darling’, ‘Childhood Soldier of Fortune’, and ‘Love Galo’, are also recreating the wonderful time of childhood, transforming the Waterfront Promenade of One Central Macau into a joyful children’s playground.
