~ About Chingay Parade Singapore...
The word Chingay is from the Hokkien dialect, of which the Mandarin equivalent is Zhuang Yi (妆艺), meaning "the art of masquerade". Started in 1973, this national festival of Singapore began as a neighbourhood parade and was a totally Chinese event then, Today, the parade has evolved to be the grandest street and floats parade in Asia, showcasing the rich, vibrant multi-ethnic and cosmopolitan cultures of Singapore and exciting performances from overseas, Held during the Chinese New Year's period thousands of individuals, organisations, local international communities and private sectors in Singapore come together to take part in this grand and highly spectacular festival every year.
