The Chingay Parade ......

This is an event that everyone should see at least once in their lives!!

The Chingay Parade

Parade of Dreams

Asia's grandest street + floats parade was held on February 23 and 24 along Orchard Road. This one (2007) was the 35th Chingay Parade.

It is not possible to describe the many floats and acts that were part of the parade. It really was quite overwhelming with all the participants, the sounds and colors of such an event.

There were acts on poles, there were belly dancers and musicians, performers re-enacting a soccer match, others re-enacting events held in Spain and Africa. Quite a multicultural event!

Then there were the floats themselves, all quite spectacular
as you can see by the photos.

and after the parade came the street party.......
