Chinese New Year Activities and Events for families 2022


 

Are you ready for the year of the Tiger?

This year CNY will probably be a muted affair. With a cap of 5 visitors per household per day, one would probably restrict to visiting immediate family for CNY. 

This also means that you would have time to spare to indulge in CNY activities all over the idea. Here are activities that are planned for families for this festive period.

1 Chinatown CNY Lightup
7 Jan to 2 March 20227pm-12mn (Daily)
Along New Bridge Road, Eu Ton Seng Street and South Bridge Road


While Chinatown may not have the usual street market, it does retain the street light up. Check out the 10.5 meters tall Tiger Family along with 60 handcrafted tigers along the streets. There are still stores selling CNY goodies and decorations, so you could still top them up before CNY.
