Chingay Parade 2015

Chingay Parade hops onto the SG50 bandwagon as it returns with the unfortunately unimaginative theme of ‘We Love Singapore’, comprising a two-night parade, a Chingay Night Fiesta at Orchard, and five heartland parades. The largest-ever number of international performers is set to feature this year, with participants from countries as diverse as Russia, Rwanda and Turkey. As usual, the parade’s highlights are the 12- to 18-metre-high floats, stilt walkers, and lion dancers. And in the grand finale, expect to see a gigantic ‘Tree of Hope’ embellished with well wishes from local youths and hear JJ Lin belt out a specially penned tune, ‘Dream’.

River Hongbao 2015

One of the most iconic events to take place along the waterfront, River Hongbao returns for the 29th year with lantern displays, handicrafts, and performances by local and international artists. To commemorate Singapore’s 50th anniversary, this edition features an exhibition entitled Reliving the Past, Welcoming the New Year, which showcases more than 230 photographs documenting the way Singaporeans have been celebrating Chinese New Year through the decades. And if you get hungry, feel free to stuff your face with a variety of local delicacies like chicken rice, bak kut teh, prawn noodles, ice kacang and more.
