Chingay Parade 2012

Chingay 2015 will be the biggest and grandest in its 42-year history, said organisers of the annual Chinese New Year procession.

Some 11,000 performers from 150 organisations will take part in the street parade, up from the usual 8,000 from 120 organisations.

Some 760 overseas performers from 15 groups will also be part of celebrations.

Singaporeans will also be roped in to create one million flowers out of plastic bags for the parade, which is themed We love Singapore(SG).

It will be a "parade of hearts" in which Singaporeans will express their love and best wishes for the Republic, said Mr Nah Juay Hng, who chairs the Chingay 2015 executive committee.

Besides the main show at the F1 Pit Building on Feb 27 and 28, there will also be a street party along Orchard Road involving youths on March 1, said the People's Association, which organises the annual event.
