Chingay 2016 – Lights of Legacy, Brighter Singapore

Chingay 2016 marks the first year of Singapore’s next 50 years towards SG100 and hence, Chingay 2016 is aptly themed, “Lights of Legacy, Brighter Singapore“, celebrating the legacy and wisdom of our founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew and other founding fathers based on the core values advocated by them and pledging our support to live by it and move forward together towards a Brighter future Singapore!

 The parade opens with an energetic vibe that promises to wow the audiences as 800 youths dressed in lighted costumes illuminate the dimmed 360-metre parade route in an upbeat choreography. Today’s youths, tomorrow’s future, guided by the wisdom of our founding fathers, kick-starts the parade as we begin the voyage towards SG100.

Spectacular aerial acts complement the ongoing joyful celebrations along the parade route, adding a new dimension to the multi-faceted and rich show. The sounds, sights and the sheer spirit of it all makes for a grand festivity every year.

The Chinese, Malay and Indian cultural performances draws audiences in appreciation of local cultural heritage and legacies through performing arts and music.

The brightest talents from china, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Russia, South Korea, USA, Taiwan and Thailand shares the stage alongside our local stars in a burst of exuberance with their performances.
