The end of the Festival

With my daughter on her first visit here since we moved I took her to see the usual sights of Singapore.

Today we visited chinatown. Following on from the Mid Autumn festival (Mid Autumn Festival - Mass Lantern Parade Sunday 1...) we passed onto New Bridge Road which was just a just a couple of days ago festooned with thousands of lanterns.



Today was a different story; they had all been taken down and were in large heaps under the bridge leading to Peoples Park.




A slightly sad sight after all the twinkle of the festival, but we can be assured that the road wont stay unadorned for long, there will be a new festival soon with new lanterns, lights and further photo opportunities  :)
