Many People asked what's Chingay? I couldn't answer but all I know it is held after 15 days of Lunar New Year. Therefore, I decided to look it up and share with you (not know where you come from ^^).
Origin of Chingay Parade in a Nutshell
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” , 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!
This year theme was FIRE IN SNOW 雪中火
