SINGAPORE: To develop the "kampong" spirit and bring the community together, more than 3,000 residents, students and community partners gathered on Sunday for the Chong Pang Community Day.

Residents set up stalls at a flea market, while some showcased their talents at a concert.

There were performances by students from various primary and secondary schools in the district.

There was also a skit to highlight the importance of racial harmony and being prepared for emergencies. - CNA/xq
