This weekend, a spectacular explosion of colour and rhythm will invade the F1 Pit Building as the Chingayparade, Asia’s grandest street and floats parade, moves into the venue. And as the mainstay favourite stilt walkers, pugilistic performers, and lion dancers strut and prance down the Parade, Firecracker Dragons from China will commemorate Chingay Parade’s new home in a fiery, dazzling display as they writhe and manoeuvre between lighted strings of firecrackers. 

Head down to the Toa Payoh Public Library to check out the handiwork of the members of Origami Singapore. Featuring intricate paper-folds, this exhibition is held to celebrate the club's one-year anniversary of holding workshops at the library, in conjunction with its 38th anniversary.
