Lanterns and lights play a symbolic role in several Asian traditions, and many believe that claiming lights of various numbers and positions will bring good fortune for the year to come. Over 800 lanterns adorn a line of arches in The Lanterns of Blessings installation, providing the path to cross over into the Lunar New Year – claim your lantern while supplies last!
How to reserve a Lantern of Blessings?
It’s simple! Please proceed to the Concierge desk at Oakridge Centre during regular mall hours to register and reserve a numbered lantern.
While supplies last. Each numbered lantern is only available to one reservation, max one reservation per guest. Name, contact info, and photo ID is required to make a reservation.
When can I write my prayer on my lantern?
Guests are invited to reserve a lantern and join us on Family Day (Monday, February 12th, 2018) to personalize their lantern with prayers and wishes for the year to come. For anyone who missed Family Day, please keep your eye out for additional personalization events!
Lanterns will be re-installed for exhibition until Sunday February 25th, 2018.
When can I take my lantern home?
Your lantern is an important component to the Lanterns of Blessings! By gathering all our wishes and prayers and passing through the arches, we collect our fortunes and positive thoughts for the year to come.
Guests will be invited to claim their lanterns to take home on February 26th from 3pm to 7pm.
