Singapore Polytechnic has been named the official supporting organisation of the Mid Autumn Festival at Chinese Garden - The Magical Ocean (5th September - 30th September 2007).
Some 25 of our Diploma in Integrated Events and Project Management students and one lecturer are currently attached to CityNeon to experience first hand, the organization of a large-scale event. They have been involved in road-shows, promotions, planning and operations for the event.
J'KIDS Amusement Ptd Ltd, the festival organizer for this year, has pumped more than S$1.2 million into the festival. Over 5,000 individual lanterns have been specially hand-constructed for this event, together with a 100-metre long festival centerpiece. The organiser is also aiming to enter the Singapore Book of Records for the largest numbers of lanterns on display. Besides the lantern attractions, the organizer has engaged exciting performing acts such as the renowned Sichuan Acrobat Troop and fireworks will be set off on selected days of the festival.
