Lantern Making Competition
(30 – 31 August 2014)

The art of lantern making has long departed from the limitations of its shape. Now, with the influx of contemporary materials and the rise of more resourceful inventors, lanterns are available in various shapes and sizes, some even requiring a proper platform to buttress their sheer weight. Such lanterns, a product of Ipoh Parade’s annual Lantern Making Competition, was exhibited during Merdeka weekend, allowing patrons of the mall to admire the handiwork of some of Ipoh’s most talented lantern makers.
