VivoCity Sets The Record For The Largest Heart Formation By People Carrying Lanterns!
03 October 2009, Singapore – VivoCity once again set a new record in the Singapore Books of Record with the "Largest Heart Formation by People Carrying Lanterns". 500 participants gathered with their families and loved ones to take part in VivoCity's third iconic Mid-Autumn record setting event. This is a proud tradition for VivoCity who has previously set the record for "The Most Number of People Doing a Dance with Lanterns" in 2008 and "The Longest Lantern Procession" in 2007 for Singapore.
The harmonious formation of the largest heart by people carrying lanterns proved to be a memorable experience for many participants. Mr. Steven Lin, who is taking part in VivoCity's Mid-Autumn Celebration for the third year said, "My family and I are really happy that we can spend Mid-Autumn together doing something that will be go down in history. We will definitely be back next year."
Apart from setting a record in the Singapore Book of Records, the participants and visitors alike were able to enjoy wonderful Chinese dance and contortionist performances at VivoCity. There was also a Floating Lantern Design Competition especially for children aged from five to 12 years old. Not only did the children get to have their delightful creations displayed at the Sky Park's wading pool, 10 winners were selected from the participants and each walked away with $200 VivoCity Vouchers and a hamper worth $100.
After the VivoCity Drummer Boys concluded the Mid-Autumn celebrations with a finale performance, the participants returned home in a joyous mood with their goodie bags filled with a VivoCity limited edition T-shirt, vouchers and a lantern. Many participants also won attractive prizes in traditional Mid-Autumn games such as Lantern Riddles and Pomelo Peeling Competition.
