CNY Fireworks Singapore 2012
January 22, 2012 by staff
CNY Fireworks Singapore 2012, One of the world’s most colourful celebrations – Chinese New Year (also known as Spring Festival) – kicks off on January 23rd and carries on until the 15th day of the first lunar month (Lantern Festival). This year’s celebrations will be particularly special as 2012 marks the Year of the Dragon – the most powerful and auspicious of all the 12 Chinese Zodiac signs.
Here is Travelbite.co.uk’s pick of the best Chinese New Year celebrations in cities across the globe:
Beijing, the capital of China, is the heart of the Chinese New Year festivities. Celebrations include Spring Festival carnivals, Peking Opera, acrobatics and tea culture displays, but none more famous than the Temple Fair. Originally a religious ritual that took place in temples during the Spring Festival (Chinese New Year), these days they offer entertainment, traditional arts and crafts, cuisine, singing and dancing and a buzzing atmosphere of festivity.
The Ditan Park Fair, Baiyunguan Temple Fair and the Changdian Temple Fair are some of the popular Temple Fairs in Beijing.
One of the most popular – and colourful – Chinese New Year events is the The Cathay Pacific International Chinese New Year Night Parade in Hong Kong. Radiating the theme of ‘World City; World Party’, the parade features illuminated floats accompanied by spectacular international performances, including everything from a Chinese Shaolin kung fu group to stilt walkers from the Netherlands! The festive, cheering crowds lining the parade route in Tsim Sha Tsui create a carnival-like atmosphere.
Singapore is ushering in the Year of the Dragon with the annual Chingay Parade, including the world’s first ever moving parade on a 360-metre stretch of water. Centred on the theme of ‘love, care and kindness everywhere’ viewers will be taken on a colourful celebration of love in all its guises.
In honour of the Dragon Year, a gripping all-dragon show will open the parade with an array of pyrotechnics splashing out against the night sky. The dramatic finale is no doubt the most highly anticipated segment of the parade with the entrance of three magnificent sailboats accompanied by a squad of dazzling performers and an extravaganza of glittering floats.
Taking place on the 3rd and 4th February, Singapore promises a truly memorable celebration of the turn of the Chinese New Year.
