Bright ideas for lantern festival


A girl showing her painting of a bunny to a friend as hundreds of young people took part in an annual lantern painting competition yesterday. Organised by the Kreta Ayer - Kim Seng Citizens' Consultative Committee, it involved 430 youngsters, who competed to create the most creative lantern ahead of the Chinatown Mid-Autumn Festival Celebrations. A total of 56 awards were given out. Selected lanterns will be displayed in Pagoda Street from Saturday to Sept 15 - the latter date being the day of the Mid-Autumn Festival.
