Singapore celebrates Spring Festival with lights, performances

Singapore is celebrating the Spring Festival with colorful lantern shows, cultural performance and other festive activities. “Family” is the theme of this year’s lantern show.

This is the tradition of family reunion during the Chinese Lunar New Year. Apart from the colorful lights and lanterns, visitors may also enjoy singing and dancing performance, writing couplets, guessing riddles, and tasting snacks.

The celebrations reached the climax when a fireworks display lit up the night sky.

Singapore’s Chinatown is filled with a festive atmosphere. As 2019 is the Year of the Pig on the Chinese zodiac, pig-shaped figurines were set up in the Chinatown with copper-coin- and golden ingot-shaped decorations symbolizing fortune and wealth.

Other festive activities included lion and dragon dances, which are a must-see program during the Spring Festival.
