Marina Bay Sands is set to dazzle this Lunar New Year with "The Dragon Awakens: 2024 Light-Up," an event that promises to be a visual spectacle like no other. Held at the heart of The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, this celebration will feature two majestic 40-metre-long dragons poised in front of a towering 15-metre-tall Dragon’s Gate, creating a breathtaking scene that brings the Legend of the Dragon Gate to life. According to this ancient myth, a carp that swims upstream and crosses the dragon's gate will transform into a powerful dragon, symbolizing perseverance and transformation.

The display is further enhanced by 88 koi fish ornaments, symbolizing abundance and good fortune, a dragon’s pearl representing wisdom and power, and 28 serene lotus lanterns, adding to the festive ambiance. Beyond the stunning light-up, attendees can immerse themselves in a rich cultural experience with traditional dragon and lion dance performances, the graceful movements of koi dancers, and a special performance by Singapore's own Nathan Hartono.

Highlighting the event will be a dazzling drone light show at the Marina Bay waterfront, scheduled for 8pm on selected dates until Feb. 18. This modern twist on traditional celebrations combines cutting-edge technology with cultural heritage, offering a unique experience that captivates both locals and visitors alike.

"The Dragon Awakens: 2024 Light-Up" at Marina Bay Sands is more than just a festive decoration; it's a celebration of culture, innovation, and the spirit of the Lunar New Year, making it a must-visit destination this festive season.
