What is Candle Night?
Candle Night, and environmental event that helps in finding one’s inner sense of time, is the brainchild of a non-profit environmental group in Japan. Candle Night events have been held in Japan since 2003. Last year, the Lighting Detectives Singapore organized the first Candle Night event in Singapore, in which over 500 participants created floating lanterns at the Marina Bay.
This year, the Lighting Detectives together with public participants will light the Merlion Park using candles within hand-made lanterns. Participating cafes and restaurants along the waterfront will also be lit up with specially designed candles and lanterns in their outdoor seating areas.
Using recycled materials as the principal theme, lanterns crafted out of plastic bottles, cups and even crab shells will be displayed at Marina Bay.
Art students from Singapore and Japan will also participate in the event and create large-scale candle installations. The event will cater for free public participation to indulge in lantern making at the Candle Kiosk, and for all to enjoy an evening of beautiful flickering candle light.
