The Chingay Parade began in Singapore in 1973 after fireworks were banned and people wanted a further way to celebrate Chinese New Year. It has since become a multicultural event with floats and performers from minority groups in Singapore such as Indian & Malay and even, for some reason, Darth Vader and a group of Storm Troopers!
Lots of dragons because of Year of the Dragon, some of them fire breathing! 🙂
