Since it was our very first time watching Chingay, we didn’t really know what to expect from it. But, as we sat in our seats, the kids got excited as they rummage through their goody bags.

The opening act saw People’s Association PAssionArts, Vocal Associates singing 麻雀衔竹枝. This song has been playing in my head the entire night like a broken record! I love how catchy and meaningful it is! Photo Credit: Victor Lim

It was not only a treat for the ears. Our eyes were fixated by the colourful costumes by graceful dancers from different ethnic groups.

One of the many reasons Chingay 2014 is so unique is because it has incorporated community efforts of many levels. Take for instance, Project Batik 360; Paint With ONE Heart has seen different communities coming together through Batik painting. The intricate 360 meter Batik Fabric that will flow through the entire Parade route accompanied by colourful multi-cultural performers.

Another community project for Chingay 2014, Knit with One Heart has seen different communities coming together and bonding through knitting. These knitted art pieces exemplifies a closely-knitted Singapore.

Spectacular Grand Finale! Featuring 720 meters of colourful Community-knitted Tapestries from Project Knit with One Heart. The theme song for the finale; 网织同心” is an Original Song composed by renown local music talent Mr Lee Si Song. I love how the song is able to intertwine 4 different languages in 1 song. Uniquely Singapore!
