This year (2011), a Lantern Float display is being held at Boat Quay on the Singapore River.

A number of floats are "anchored" along Boat Quay with display on the Chinese Zodiac alongside the riverside bank between the Boat Quay and Central Mall.

The best time to visit it is in the evening after sunset.

When is it held? It is usually 2 weeks before the Chinese Lunar Calendar on the 15th day of the eighth month, which is usually, in September every year. Free display alongside the river.

Address: Boat Quay
Directions: MRT: Clarke Quay
