If you are in Singapore during the Chinese New Year period, the Chingay Parade is an annual event you must not miss. Chingay means 'the art of costume and masquerade' in the Hokkien dialect and the parade is an annual celebration, where different groups and races come together to put on a colorful display. Expect to witness colorful floating platforms and street performers in fanciful costumes, from the largest street performance and float parade in Asia.
