Chinatown Festivals Organising Committee, the official organiser for both Chinese New Year Celebrations and Mid-Autumn Festival in Chinatown, had launched the“Adopt a Lantern” campaign since 2014. For the Chinatown Chinese New Year Celebrations 2018 street light-up where we celebrate the Year of the Dog, the Organising Committee is glad to announce that all lanterns 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 their adopted 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 environmental friendly.

Please be informed that only successful application will be notified.

Application Start Date: 28 January 2018

Application Closing Date: 9 March 2018

In view that there is limited quantity of lanterns, the Organiser will be reviewing the application based on the type of organisation and the purpose for adoption.

Successful applicant will be notified by Mid-March 2018.

Lantern Collection Date: End-March 2018

The contractor will contact you to arrange for the collection of lanterns. Please arrange your own transport and manpower to handle the collection.
