The familiar Macao Light Festival will kick off its eighth edition this Saturday with a new brand – Light up Macao 2022 – along with fresh highlights and the support of integrated resorts in the destination.
Organised by Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) and in partnership with local enterprises, Light up Macao 2022 will illuminate 28 locations across eight districts under the theme, Dazzling Winter, from December 3 to January 1, 2023.
Weaving public art and innovative technology, the festival will present light installations, interactive games, projection mapping shows and light decorations under different themes such as Immersion · Metaverse; World Heritage · Aesthetics; Instant Travel · Nature; Virtual & Reality · Quantum; Mystery · Fiesta; Romance · Winter; and Leisure · Space.
The event is expected to attract a wider range of visitors, enrich the destination experience and extend visitors’ length of stay by showcasing more areas of Macau and expanding nighttime entertainment options.
Six integrated resorts will support the annual event for the first time, offering their facades and facilities for light installations and projection light shows.
Festival-goers can look forward to four projection light mapping shows presented by teams from Macau, China and other countries. These will take place from 19.00 to 22.00 daily, with the last show starting at 21.50.
Light up Macao 2022 will also offers visitors a chance to shop for a range of local cultural and creative products, including those themed after Mak Mak, the local tourism mascot, at Anim’Arte Nam Van. Mak Mak will make an appearance during the event.
Further experiences will be offered online, through games and missions to win souvenirs.
