What is JB Chingay 柔佛古庙众神出巡 ?
It is a combination of ritual ceremony and JB Chingay. The festival last 5 days, the God would be invited and carried out for a round trip from JB Old Chinese Temple to another Temple, and on the last day, there is a Chingay festival together to send the God back to the temple.


What to expect ?
You may refer to last year visit
YR 2012 JB Chingayhttp://www.clubsnap.com/forums/land-city-scapes-travel/1046405-12th-feb-jb-outing-special-edition.html



Date
2nd March. The ceremony start 7pm to midnight.



Where to Meet ?
I would suggest to meet at somewhere at Citysquare by latest 6pm. We will walk to the starting point.
End about 1030pm, so that you guys can catch bus back to SG. Those who drive, can stay on and we go makan supper.

There is no limit for this sign up. Once we meet at starting point, I believe everyone will walk their own way to follow the parade. We will meet for drink and makan at the end.

if you like to go on your own, please feel free. Once you are here in JB, you can't miss the event. So dun think that if you could not join this group, you could not come and shoot for this event. Bear in mind, there is no seat allocation, and you basically can walk into the troop if you are daring enough and no one chase you out.

- Common sense, street awareness , personal safety always come first, ie dun run into Dragon Dance, dun confront Ah Beng to fight for good spot/location etc.

Yeah, like Van has mentioned, from past media, it's quite a crowded event, any precaution we need to take note? E.g.: backpack, slingpack etc.

note:
whole of JB town will b at standstill bcos of this event and the crowds that attend it is HUGE.

From what I know, it seems like there will be 'Live" telecast this year, not sure if it will help to reduce the crowds.

if dragon dances and lion dances r ur thing, this is a MUST-JOIN event.

if u really wan to watch the dragon/lion perform their dances, stay near the VIP stand which is in front of city square

it is more than just dragon and lion dance. there are lots more chinese cultural performance too. based on experince, I would stay away from city square. it is so crowdy.....my advice is to start at starting point, walk with the parade until wong ah fook.
