Mid-autumn season’s that time of the year where we walk around with a lantern in one hand, and a bag of mooncake to take home in the other. And there’s no place more apt to celebrate than Chinatown itself. 

This year, Chinatown Point will be a one-stop location to celebrate the occasion with its Festivities under the Moonlight event that will keep you busy this mid-autumn season. From 16th August – 15th September 2019, win prizes just by spending $88, and craft your own lanterns and adorable pompom Jade Rabbits.

Here’s everything to look out for:

Channel your inner Picasso at the art & craft activities


Let’s face it – the most advanced thing some of us can draw are stick people. But even so, we have to admit that there’s something fulfilling in making your very own piece of art from scratch.

90’s babies would remember the badass actor Vincent Ng in old local dramas like Heartlanders and Heroes in Black. The way the man used his superior wushu skills to kick butt was super inspiring, and the memories have stuck with me up ‘til today. 

Catch young wushu practitioners perform similar stunts at the Wushu Star Contest 2019. They’ll be wowing with exhilarating displays of the Chinese martial art, as a finale event during the actual mid-autumn weekend.
