SINGAPORE – Make family time all the more special with these ideas and activities.
Visit: Sanrio-themed light-up at VivoCity
Fill your Instagram account with family wefies taken at Garden of Lights at VivoCity mall’s Sky Park.
The free Sanrio-themed event launched last Thursday and runs until Oct 1.
The four photo points include a 50m-long Sanrio Characters Friendship Bridge, formed by 18 arches featuring popular stars under the global lifestyle brand such as My Melody, Kuromi and Pompompurin.
A 7m-tall Hello Kitty figurine, standing in a flower maze amid piped-in Japanese songs, is another highlight.
Admission is from 10am daily and the photo points are lit from 6.30 to 10pm.
Although it is held in celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival, which falls on Sept 29, you will not spot any lanterns here.
