About river hongbao festival Singapore

The River Hong Bao Festival is another important day marked on the Chinese calendar celebrated to usher in the Chinese New Year. This festival is usually held for a period of seventeen days, with the designated event venue paraded with large-scale displays of well-known Chinese mythical characters including the Chinese God of Fortune and the 12 Chinese zodiac animals.

The richness of the Chinese culture is evident here with the atmospheric bright lights and red-coloured lanterns, cooking demonstrations, a food street filled with deliciously prepared snack items, speciality stalls hawking souvenirs and handicrafts, and a never-ending line-up of Chinese song and dance performances. 

And while the events going on throughout the day, a nighttime visit is highly recommended where you will be given the opportunity to view the spectacular display of lights. This will indeed be a cultural experience in Singapore that you will never forget!
