Chingay Parade 2009 - Wonderland

I was stuck at River HongBao 2009 last night for 2 hours because of Chingay Parade 2009. The street was closed. So Chris and I watched the parade and fireworks.

More than 4,000 local and international performers from Australia, Japan, China, India and Indonesia participated in this annual street parade.

There were 13 floats competing for awards for the Best Float Design, contingent display and audience engagement, and Champion of the Year. Each floats costs between S$70,000 and S$120,000 to make.

This year's parade theme is Wonderland.

Tickets start from S$45. I watched for free along Esplanade Park. :)

River Hongbao Closing Performance cum Grand Lo Hei Dinner

1st Feb 2009


The series of nine-day festivities of River Hongbao would end on the night of 1st Feb with Mr Lim Swee Say, Minister for Prime Minister’s Office being the Guest-of-Honour. The highlight of the night is the Grand Lo Hei Dinner where over two thousand people would be led by the Guest-of-Honourto lo hei together and celebrate this special day.

For the purpose of the Grand Lo Hei Dinner, tentage would be constructed on-site which would pose a restriction on the dispersing of the gold foil by the God-of-Fortune. Therefore, the Organising Committee has decided that there will not be any dispersal of gold foil by God-of-Fortune for that night.
