SINGAPORE: Organisers of this year’s Chingay Parade are expecting a crowd of 150,000 people to turn up for the event.
After 15 months of preparation, performers are finally ready for the stage.
The theme for this year’s Chingay Parade is "Fire in Snow".
Rehearsals for the parade started on Thursday, and the parade will start at 8pm on Friday and on Saturday.
The Chingay Parade will kick off with an opening act — a giant centipede made up of 60 performers from Guangdong, China.
The performers hail from all corners of the globe including stilt—walkers from France, who will perform with a local youth group.
Other acts include traditional dances from South Korea and the Philippines.
The parade will culminate in a finale involving 1,000 Singaporeans and a fire torch.
