Wishing you and your friends a prosperous and healthy Year of the Dog!
Sky lanterns are used all over the world to carry hopes and wishes, especially for celebrations.
Hundreds of sky lanterns will adorn a line of arches in the Lantern of Blessings installation, providing the path to cross over into the Lunar New Year. You can reserve a lantern, then customize it on Family Day with your prayers and blessings for the new year.
How to receive a lucky lantern:
Step 1. Proceed to the Concierge desk at Oakridge Centre to reserve a numbered lantern. Pick your lucky number for the year!
Step 2. Join us on Family Day (Monday, Feb 12th) to personalize your lantern with prayers and wishes. Your lantern will be re-installed and exhibited until Sunday, February 25th.
Step 3. Drop by on February 26th from 3 pm - 7 pm to pick up and take your blessed lantern home for a year of fortune!
While you are there, capture all the luck you can from a photo with the “Perfect Year of the Dog” art installation featuring ten golden dogs in the East Galleria.
