I brought the kids down to the Merlion Park last Sunday to catch the last day of the iLight Marina Bay 2012. The lighting display was beautiful, while the kids enjoyed the “DIY” light-painting of the Merlion – despite the hour-long queue.

The lasers were not out yet because it was still early. The rainbow lights from the boats provided its own light display.

The iLight Marina Bay 2012 lasted from 9 March to 1 April 2012 this year.

This was the second edition of the sustainable light art festival, which was first organised last year.

The lighting festival had the photography community in Singapore abuzz with excitement as photographers, both professionals and amateurs, flocked to the vicinity to snap beautiful pictures of the light.

Children loved the Merlion light-painting.

Using a large touch-screen monitor, they could select parts of the Merlion and then paint it with a colour of their choice from a colour palette.

As they filled in the colours, coloured light was projected onto the actual Merlion statue, according to their selections.

The Merlion has never been more spoilt for choice when it came to choosing his party clothes.
