Lighting Festival: Till April 30 At People’s Park
The very first Myanmar International Lighting Festival organized by DN Development Group started at People’s Park on Sunday.
Hello! Everyone, the 1st Myanmar International Lighting Festival is being held at People’s Park with the aim of celebrating Myanmar New Year with an extravagant lighting Festival.
Regional Security and Border Affairs Minister Col. Tin Aung Tun, Rakhine Ethnic Affairs Minister U Zaw Aye Maung and President of UMFCCI U Zaw Myint Win attended the opening ceremony.
Project Manager, DN Development Group, Hein Htet: We got the idea from Singapore’s Lighting Festival during the last Christmas. In January, we discussed with the Yangon Region Chief Minister on holding such an event and he agreed. Now it is a good time after exams and before Thingyan, our new year. So, we are holding this event to help the people have fun and relax. The electricity consumption of this festival is the same as a house with 3 rooms. We are now making preparations to hold such events across the country.
Myanmar International Lighting Festival 2017 features over 60 lighting utilizing 70 million LED lights.
Models of Eiffel tower of Paris, Mount Fuji of Japan, cartoon characters and animals are created with the LED lights – a light tunnel is also included.
Visitor, Tin Tun: It is really an amazing night for us. Now, our young people created the 1st Lighting Festival and I’m proud of them. Today, I come with my family and we take the photos. And we will visit again and again because it is really interesting.
Visitor, DD Saw Thet: “Right now, I’m so really excited to be here because there is really proud of me, because there is the 1st time in Myanmar also. And you know, that is in my life, I have never seen just like this. So I’m really proud of being in Myanmar also.”
