Electric Chingay Parade

Vibrant floats, dancing dragons, prancing lions, stilt walkers, wushu masters, performers of different races in their traditional costumes and many, many more…

Held on 27 and 28 Feb, 2015, at F1 Pit Building, this years Chingay parade was themed as “We love SG”. More than 11,000 multicultural performers from various countries participated this year.
This years Chingay is the biggest parade in history of Singapore as country celebrates 50 years of freedom.

The word Chingay is equivalent to the Mandarin zhuang yi (妆艺), which means “the art of costume and masquerade” in the Hokkien dialect.

The grand opening was spectacular with “We Love SG Flowers” hand crafted from used plastic bags and bottles.

Viewer turnout was estimated at between 180,000 and 200,000 people.

It was really a photographers delight. But light was bit challenging. Multiple colored auxiliary lights made shooting difficult.

    I don’t know anything about photography but I think since it is night it would be difficult for good quality photos but yours everything has come nicely… where is that prancing lion and serpent and the things you mentioned, I can see only dances with very colourful custume. If I would have gone there might have got bored if it was only dancing and dancing shows… but very well done… Singapore thought is a small city you have like lots of things to write about it… people look happy and friendly here… looks nice actually.

      Actually it was much more than i could capture. Due to night time, I was limited by the fast action.
      You would never have bored with the wonderful display. Multi ethic groups made the parade a treat to watch.
      Well every now and then some events keep on happening in Singapore. Perhaps to lure more tourists and keep local people busy 🙂
