Having been to Singapore 3 times and having covered almost all the things to do over about 10 days, in anticipation of our upcoming travels via Singapore I looked to see what was doing for the night before departure.. Well, guess what, for the first time in my life a major event traditional to a particular city was happening and this time, for once, I was going to be there. The Chingay parade. JAN 31 and feb 01 2020 is a Mardi Gras, or Rio de Janiero style carnival parade happening right down near the hottest tourist spot in the city. Beneath the Singapore Flyer massive Ferris wheel, overlooking Merlin Park, the float, the science Center, and Gardens on the bay etc, is a 1000 person at least , performer parade. Preceded by a Carnival during the afternoon, and followed by Chinese New Years festivities. Because I was arranging for a major M&G aboard a departing vessel in the morning from the Marina Bay Pier, I had about 150 names available to me from within a cruise forum , so I arranged for special seating for many of us and this became truly a party night.
