Chingay 2019 – Dreams Funtastia
February 15 - February 17
Chingay means the art of costume and masquerade in the Hokkien dialect and it is the largest street performance and float parade in Asia.
A special edition of Singapore’s unique multicultural street and floats extravaganza to commemorate the Singapore Bicentennial.
A first-of-its-kind Painting : 270m x 7m on the Past, Present and Future of Singapore
Created by three Singaporean multi-disciplinary artists of different races, it illustrates the history of Singapore from a humble fishing village to today’s modern, progressive multi-ethnic country. The completed painting, digitised and enlarged into a 270-metre long artwork, will be brought to life at the parade by 240 performers interspersed within the painting.
Exciting performances from a diverse representation of cultural and interest groups – acrobatic stunts by stilt walkers and freestyle lions on high poles. A 49m LED giant flying balloon dragon is making its debut at the parade. There will be cheerleaders, unicyclists, rhythmic gymnasts and LED Kites enthusiasts, among others. Riders on Go-Karts, Harley Davidson bikes, Vintage cars and Vespa sidecars will showcase their speeds and styles.
A Dynamic Finale
Hundreds of young people, joined by thousands of performers from previous performances, present a futuristic finale; celebrating Singapore as a nation, its unique identity and distinctive DNA.
A stunning display of pyrotechnics – as usual.
