Falling on the 15th day of the 8th month according to the Chinese lunar calendar, the Mid-Autumn Festival is the second grandest festival in China after the Chinese New Year. It takes its name from the fact that it is always celebrated in the middle of the autumn season. The day is also known as the Moon Festival, as at that time of the year the moon is at its roundest and brightest. Romantically speaking, the festival is to commemorate Chang E, who in order to protect her beloved husband’s elixir, ate it herself and flew to the moon.
For a twist, celebrate this grand festival at Singapore Polo Club’s annual Mid-Autumn Party! Lots of activities and games are prepared for the young as well as adults. As it is a time for families to unite, parents and children can bond via a lantern trail walk at dusk, savour some tasty moon cakes and participate in exciting games.
Founded in 1886, during Singapore’s colonial past, the Club has a long and fascinating history. Set in acres of lush, tropical grounds, the Singapore Polo Club is a world apart from Singapore’s bustling pace yet located just minutes from the heart of the city’s hectic business and commercial centre. The old world, rustic charm of the clubhouse with its open verandah and views of tropical greenery and open spaces provides a relaxing and understated, natural ambience.
