Chingay Singapore is the largest street performance and float parade in Asia. From the main parade site to the heartlands, this street extravaganza epitomizes the dynamism of Singapore’s vibrant and multicultural society.
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 First Formal Chingay Parade in Singapore was mooted by the then-Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew who was also the chairman of the People’s Association (PA). Chingay, with all its noise and gaiety, would compensate for the ban on firecrackers, a customary New Year practice to drive away evil spirits.
