Adopt a Lantern

Recycle. Reuse. Redecorate.

Chinatown Festivals Organising Committee, the official organiser for both Chinatown Chinese New Year Celebrations and Mid-Autumn Festival, has launched the “Adopt a Lantern” campaign since 2014. For this coming Chinatown Chinese New Year Celebrations 2020 where we usher in the Year of the Rat, the Organising Committee is glad to announce that all street lanterns are available for adoption. 

The public may adopt one or more lanterns after the Street light-up ended on 22 February 2020. The adoption is free but the interested party will have to submit an online application, arrange their own transport and manpower to collect their adopted lanterns upon confirmation of their application by the Organiser.

Priority will be given to community organisation, educational institution and voluntary welfare organisation. Individual who wishes to adopt the lanterns to decorate their house or company who wishes to decorate their office or factory premises with the adopted lanterns are welcome.  

One of the main objectives for this adoption exercise is to allow the organisation, individual or company to share these beautiful lanterns with others and continue to spread the festive cheers.

While the Organiser Recycles the lanterns, the public Reuse the lanterns to Redecorate their house and 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: 3 February 2020
Application Closing Date: 17 February 2020

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.

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