Fans of Singapore's own cultural extravaganza will be thrilled to know that this year's Chingay Parade Singapore 2013 will be held on 22 and 23 February at the F1 Pit Building next to the Singapore Flyer.
On top of the usual splendid floats and multi-cultural performances, both local and international, tourists and Singaporeans alike will witness the grandiose lighting of fireboats by 3,000 performers to mimic an ocean of fire in this year's theme, 'Fire in Snow'. Audience may expect explosions of pyrotechnics, firecrackers as well as dancing dragons spewing fire from their mouths too.
Also, On the Go Chingay! brings the annual experience to the heartlands like Causeway Point, Jurong Point, nex and Tampines 1. Families and neighbors can enjoy cultural performances as well as energetic hip-hop dances in the comfort of their neighbourhoods.
