Chingay Parade

If a single event could capture the essence of Singapore’s unique multicultural personality, it would be the Chingay Parade – an annual marvel of dazzling floats, dancing dragons and stilt walkers.

It may be held during the Chinese New Year festivities, but this wondrous event brings together people and performances from across the spectrum of Singaporean culture; celebrated by Chinese, Malays, Indians and Eurasians alike.

With all its noise and gaiety, the parade was mooted over four decades ago as a way to compensate for the ban that had been placed on firecrackers, a customary New Year practice to drive away evil spirits.

Today, the Chingay Parade is the largest street performance and float parade in Asia – a shimmering celebration that makes its way across the heartland of this country. (From Singapore Tourism Board website)
