Macao Light Festival 2020 – Light Carnival

Colorful Illuminations Dazzle Parishes along Four Routes

“Macao Light Festival 2020 – Light Carnival”, which is dazzling the cityscape until 31 October 2020 is organized by Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) and co-organized by Municipal Affairs Bureau, Cultural Affairs Bureau, Sports Bureau and Economic Bureau with the support of the Industry and Commerce Federation of Macau Central and Southern District, the Industry and Commerce Association of Macau Northern District, as well as the Industry and Commerce Federation of Islands of Macao. Staged for the sixth year, the Festival is lighting up Tap Seac Square for the first time with a spectacular mapping show projected upon four historic façades. Four routes are mapped out across 12 locations in town to create a sparkling carnival.

Parishes radiant with carnival color

The 6th Macao Light Festival is staged from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. from 26 September to 31 October today. The last mapping show begins at 9:50 p.m. daily. Themed as “Light Carnival”, the Festival presents light installations and interactive games at 12 locations along four designated routes themed as “Circus”, “Time Tunnel”, “Candy Kingdom” and “Music Box of Lights” in different parishes. The Festival offers many hotspots for selfies and check-ins on social media. Macao Tourism Mascot MAK MAK appears in lovely costumes across the routes, accompanying residents and visitors on the fun “Light Carnival” journey.

Mapping shows tell enchanting stories at five locations

The Macao Light Festival is staging different mapping shows at five iconic attractions including Tap Seac Square, China Products Company at Largo do Pagode do Bazar and Wong IengKuan Children’s Library in AreiaPreta Urban Park as new venues, as well as Macau (Yat Yuen) Canidrome and the restaurant Cozinha Pinocchio Taipa at Largo dos Bombeiros in Taipa Village as last year. At Tap Seac Square, the mega mapping show is projected upon the facades of four historic architectures including the buildings of Cultural Affairs Bureau, Tap Seac Health Centre, Macao Central Library and the

Archives of Macao. Painting strokes of light upon the magnificent canvas, the show conveys various expressions of color in different styles of artworks.

MGTO is paying a close attention to the latest situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, while making timely and proper arrangements for all the shows and activities in accord with the guidelines issued by Health Bureau.
