The Singapore River HongBao will be held at a new venue when it turns 20
next year. To mark the milestone, organisers are moving the event from the
Marina Promenade back to its starting point - the mouth of the Singapore
River. To usher in the Year of the Dog, some 2.6 hectare of the Esplanade
Park will be transformed into a fairyland of lights and colours.
For thefirst time, there will be three- to five-minute fireworks displays every night throughout the 17-day carnival. Singapore River HongBao kicks off on Jan 27.
