Chinese New Year Celebrations @ Year of the Rat
February 5 – 16, 2008
The Esplanade Park,

The Chinese New Year heralds the arrival of spring and at the Singapore River Hongbao (SRHB) 2008, the Esplanade Park will be transformed into a garden of flowers to welcome the Year of the Rat.

In line with our basic objective of promoting family togetherness during this major Chinese festival, the 22nd SRHB has lined up a host of activities for children, young adults and senior citizens.

For the first time, SRHB will stay open throughout the night on February 16. To complement Chingay’s all-night party, the SRHB lights and stalls will be on until 4 am on February 17.

To bring the fireworks nearer to the visitors, this year’s fireworks will be launched from the Esplanade Drive. The specially choreographed fireworks will be conducted on February 5, 6, 7and 8.
