Chingay 2011

Last night Feb 12, 2011 me and my boyfriend witnessed the most incredible parade and street dance we ever saw! Yeah! It’s different from any parade shows. All people in singapore from different races gathered to form a spectular event Chingay 2011.

A dazzling extravaganza of colours and cultural diversity, Chingay Parade Singapore is known for its resplendent floats and multi-cultural local and international performances that are an insight to our festive traditions and delight the hearts of many Singaporeans and tourists.

The word Chingay is from the Hokkien dialect, of which the Mandarin equivalent is Zhuang Yi (妆艺), meaning “the art of masquerade”. The festival began as a neighbourhood parade with only Chinese elements in 1973. Today, the Chingay Parade has evolved to be the grandest street and floats parade in Asia, showcasing the rich, vibrant multi-culturalism of Singapore and exciting cultures all over the world. To all Singaporeans, the next Chingay Parade is a parade of our people, our dreams and our pride!

I never thought that they would spent big on an annual street event.  The props, the crew, the balloons, the customes, the FIREWORKS (the best!!!) and all it surely the best parade in the whole world!

So here are the pictures we took on the parade 2. by the way we are located in the Category 2 (Yellow Ticket Holders).
