Chingay Parade is one of the most important events in Singapore that you should not miss! It is a street parade consisting of beautiful floats, multi-racial performers with Chinese, Malays and Indians joining together to put up a grand show in celebration of the Chinese New Year!
The parade originated from China, where processions were made in honour of the Lunar New Year for two weeks in preparation for the arrival of the Spring.
Here are some of the sneak peek of what you can expect to see at this year, Chingay Parade:
The whole parade is filled with bright, colourful, elaborate lights, festival hosts floats, dancing dragons, stilt walkers, performers of different races in their traditional costumes comprising of talents from People’s Association, artists from Singapore and other countries and many more!
This is one superb parade that you will enjoy wonderful, stunning, beautiful lights, sounds, music and great performances all in one parade.
Look out for one of the longest dragon dance at the parade!
Dazzling firework displays at the end of the show. This year, Chingay will involve 2,000 parade volunteers and 6,500 parade performers, and will also feature many examples of smart technology, including dancing robots and driverless cars. The 2018 Chingay will be the first year to have a free street parade and carnival as part of the celebration, and will follow a 1.5 kilometre route, double the length of the usual 720 metres.
