Experience the magic of the Sky Lantern Festival at Sentosa's Palawan Green! Join for an evening of lantern lighting, wishes, and positivity in the sky.
Sky lanterns are often released with written messages, wishes, or prayers. The act of releasing the lanterns symbolizes sending these aspirations into the sky, with the belief that they will be carried to the heavens, deities, or the universe. Now you don’t have to go to Taiwan to release sky lanterns during the Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival!
Join in for a magical evening of lantern lighting and wishes in the sky at this one-day event at Sentosa’s Palawan Green. The family-friendly programme promises to be filled with fun, positivity, happiness, unity, hope, love and great memories that could last a lifetime.
Featured by Eventbrite, Singapore Sky Lantern Festival will be held on February 21, 2024 at the Palawan Green.
There may be concerns that the Sky Lanterns are potential safety hazards and environmentally unfriendly, as they will cause land and sea pollution once they drift back down.
Fret not! The biodegradable lanterns (made of oiled rice paper) will always remain tethered to the ground with 60-meter-long bamboo strings as they hover in the air for about five to ten minutes. Once the duration is over, participants can retrieve their lanterns via the strings and dispose of them responsibly. There will be no free release of lanterns.
The event is officially approved by the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), and Sentosa Development Corporation. Safety marshals will be present and on standby with fire extinguishers to manage any fire-related mishaps.
Tickets are now on sale and cost $50 excluding booking fees. Each ticket comes with a pair of lanterns and a marker. Children between the age of 0 to 7 years old can enter the venue, free of charge!
