As Chinese New Year approaches, Chinatown comes to life with sculptured lanterns and light installations of (what else?) tigers and their cubs.

From now till 2 March, the district will be illuminated nightly by intricate lanterns designed by students from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), with 3 different sections of lantern displays representing various stages of the tiger's life from cub to adulthood. Be sure to also look out for the centrepiece, a family of 5 tigers that symbolise reunion, harmony and prosperity.

Additionally, you can also look forward to a wide variety of festive online programmes during this period, such as getai performances, baking workshops and cooking demonstrations.

Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall's (SYSNMH) annual Wan Qing Festival of Spring is here to welcome the Year of the Tiger. This year, the festival boasts an auspicious lawn decoration titled “Blessings Come A-Knocking", which was created as a collaboration between SYSNMH and artist Ng Tik Ka (Tik Ka From East), a Hong Kong artist, illustrator and designer.

This installation blends the artist's signature style of depicting familiar pop culture figures with the traditional style of Lunar New Year prints, which are believed to bar bad luck from entering, offer protection and attract blessings for households in the upcoming year.

You can also look forward to an engaging line-up of family-friendly programmes in the weeks to come, such as lion dance performances, heritage trails, lantern making workshops and more.
