The most festive and exciting area during this period is in Chinatown. The streets come alive with colorful and brightly-lit traditional lanterns. Dazzling decorations are also found along the stretch of roads. The official Street Light-up of Chinatown Mid-Autumn Festival 2019 kick starts with an exciting line-up of a dragon dance performance and multicultural song. There are also spectacular dance performances by local and overseas troupes. Throngs of people consisting of locals and tourists will be soaking in the festivities and celebrations. More than 300 stalls are offering treats such as mooncakes, handicrafts, teas, lanterns, and more.

Annual events such as the Mid-Autumn Festival are an opportunity for marketers and advertisers to connect with consumers. Facebook and Twitter greetings, in-store promotions (sales and discounts), flyers and posters, and many other means are used to get consumers’ attention.

Another great way to reach consumers during the Mid-Autumn Festival is through out-of-home advertising. Since there are many parades and outdoor festivities happening during this time, static and digital billboard advertisements placed at key locations will definitely not go amiss.

There are other upcoming events and festivals still yet to happen such as Deepavali, Christmas, Chinese New Year, and so on where you can place out-of-home advertisements for many people to see. The summer time is also a great time for out-of-home advertising. Not only do locals find the downtime to go out and about, an influx of tourists are also visiting Singapore during the summer. In 2018, over 4.8 million foreign tourists arrived in Singapore from June to August. Also, tourists spent S$1.38 million on sightseeing and tourism last year. Meanwhile, S$1.33 million was spent on shopping by tourists. Besides the summer time, Chinese New Year is also a great holiday for out-of-home advertising. 2.9 million foreign visitors arrived at Singapore from January to February 2018, with many tourists meaning to celebrate the Chinese holiday alongside locals.
