Chingay started in Singapore in 1973. It was started as a response to the banning of fireworks in order to ensure that the ban would not dampen the Chinese New Year celebrations. The first Chingay parade comprises of floats, acrobatic acts, lion and dragon dance , stilt walkers and others to liven up the atmosphere.
It was a delightful invitation as it meant that it would be the first time we experienced Chingay as one family. It was an upgrade from my last participation as a media photographer for Chingay 2013. Celebrating the festival as a family sure beats experiencing it on my own.
