Mid-autumn revellers can look forward to a dazzling display of lanterns, cultural performances and food at this year's Mid-Autumn @ Gardens by the Bay festival from Friday to Oct 8.

Based on the theme Autumn Abundance, key highlights include more than 500 sunflower lanterns and the Flight of the Dragonflies installation, which will see the gardens' Supertrees decked with dragonfly lanterns.

There will also be performances, including those of traditional Chinese music and Malay dance.

Minister for Social and Family Development and Second Minister for National Development Desmond Lee will launch the festival on Friday.

Mid-Autumn @ Gardens by the Bay is presented by Gardens by the Bay, co-organised with the National Arts Council, in partnership with the Singapore Press Holdings' Chinese Media Group, Singapore University of Technology and Design, and People's Association. It is also supported by the Tote Board and Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple.
