Macao Festival to light up the sky this festive season

Macao Festival to light up the sky this festive season

The city will be celebrating a number of events throughout December, with the month-long Macao Light Festival to be the largest in their history.

Macao will be celebrating the 2019 festive season with a huge display of lighting to decorate the city’s squares, streets and 22 UNESCO World Heritage-listed sites.  Running until 31 December, the Macao Light Festival is expected to draw a number of tourists, particularly given that this is the largest event to be held in their five-year history.

Among the events scheduled to occur will be a giant fireworks display on 22 December, commemorating the city’s anniversary as a Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China. The display will span the entire city, as well as include 600 drones forming pictures of a Macao lotus, the ruins of St Pauls, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge and a handshake between Macao and Zhuhai.

Four carefully designed luminous walking routes will be available throughout December, as well as projection mapping, light installations and interactive games. Organisers expect interest to centre on Nam Van Lake, which will host a 30-metre Floating Wonder projection, a 12-metre inflatable mascot and a projected Mak Mak parade.
