Chinese New Year Street Light Up at Chinatown, Singapore 2010

The story of a Chinese New Year Street Light up 2010. Went to Chinatown at about 7.30pm. The main road was close to allow the people to walk along the street to admire the bing bing lights in Chinatown. The place was super pack. Look at the photo. We can’t even go near to the stage!

Singapore Chinese New Year Celebrations 2009: Chinatown Chinese New Year Light Up 2009

What is Chinese New Year in Singapore without a trip down to Chinatown?

The Chinese New Year action at Chinatown opened with a big bang (literally in the form of firecrackers and fireworks as well as figuratively) yesterday night with a mega celebration which marked the official light up of Chinatown for the coming Chinese New Year.

There was a host of stage performances and singing gigs by local and Chinese artisties and not forgetting the enduring features of the lion and dragon dances. The show was a lengthy one, stretching from 7pm to 9:15pm and it was also a draggy one as the spectators were just too eager to catch the finale: the bursting of the firecrackers! (a phenomenon that can only occur during the Chinese New Year period in Singapore).
