With Valentine’s Day and Chinese Lantern Festival soon arriving, Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) is kicking off its 3D mapping show, a highlight of “Valentine's Day Fantasia 2016 – The Fairytale of Lights”, with an opening ceremony held at the Amphitheater of the Taipa Houses-Museum tonight (12 February). The 3D mapping show themed as “Cinderella’s Glass Slipper” is presented to local residents and visitors with the warmest blessings and wishes that all lovers and families can enjoy the sweetest happiness and bliss every day. MGTO Director Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes, President of Cultural Affairs Bureau, Ung Vai Meng, and Administration Committee Member of Civic and Municipal Affairs Bureau, Isabel Celeste Jorge, unveiled the 3D mapping show of “Valentine's Day Fantasia 2016 – The Fairytale of Lights”. Beautiful like a dream, the enchanting 3D mapping show “Cinderella’s Glass Slipper” was officially launched tonight, inviting spectators to travel through time and step into an imaginative world of romantic fairytale. The MGTO-organized “Valentine's Day Fantasia 2016 – The Fairytale of Lights” is staged at the Taipa Houses-Museum area and numerous attractions nearby in Taipa from 7 to 29 February, presenting light installations at over ten locations, an interactive game as well as a 3D mapping show. The Civic and Municipal Affairs Bureau and Cultural Affairs Bureau are the event co-organizers. By holding a wide variety of events and activities, MGTO encourages visitors from around the world to visit Macao for a long vacation besides offering new choices of leisure and entertainment to local residents, as the Office keeps on forging Macao into a “City of Events” and supporting the SAR Government to foster Macao’s development into a World Centre of Tourism and Leisure. The 14 groups of light installations, including 9,999 rose illuminations, are dazzling across the Taipa Houses-Museum area and Carmel Parish between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. from 7 to 29 February. As for another highlight in the event, the 3D mapping show “Cinderella’s Glass Slipper” is staged to express heartwarming wishes to residents and visitors at the Amphitheater of the Taipa Houses-Museum between 12 and 22 February, a period which covers Valentine’s Day, the 7th day of Lunar New Year known as “Human’s Birthday”, as well as Chinese Lantern Festival, a traditional occasion celebrated by Chinese lovers. Themed as “Cinderella’s Glass Slipper”, the 3D mapping show is staged from 7 p.m. until the last show at 9:55 p.m. each night during the aforementioned period. The story of Cinderella comes to life in a brand-new way through an extravaganza of lights. The story is about a prince who travels through time to meet his girl again in Macao on Valentine’s Day. The prince helps the girl to put on her glass slipper, and they live happily ever after, with sweet blessings showered upon every resident and visitor. An interactive game is also available after each round of 3D mapping show, with the last game presented at 9:40 p.m. The game combines bicycle generators and 3D projection mapping techniques, allowing participants to weave their own romantic fairytale. The Office rolled out “Macao Light Festival 2015 - Journey of Lights” last December, a spectacular event that went widely popular with positive feedback received. Following the success, MGTO brings on another lighting extravaganza at the Taipa Houses-Museum area and numerous attractions nearby, hoping to enrich the calendar of festive activities on Taipa and also create beautiful memories in the heart of visitors and residents this festive season of joy and love. In the days ahead, MGTO will keep up its efforts to organize a diversity of events and activities, as well as strengthen the partnership between tourism, culture and sports to radiate a greater synergistic effect, hoping to let visitors experience the city in various styles. The Office will also keep assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of the events and festivals, while hearing ideas and suggestions from various circles in the society. The Office will be dedicated to achieving a balance between the needs of residents and visitors, striving for the best and widening the public’s participation. On top of the above endeavors, the Office will look into the possibilities of rolling out more fun, innovative and colorful events in various local districts at different times of the year, hoping to gain the support and love of residents and visitors alike.
