VGP - An artist delegation of Viet Nam has joined the 2018 Chingay Parade celebrating the Lunar New Year in Singapore.

Deputy Director of the HCM City Department of Cultural, Sports and Tourism Mai Ba Hung said through the festival, Viet Nam wishes to promote cultural exchanges with Singaporean friends as well as with international artists from around the world, taking the opportunity to learn from their experiences in order to research the organisation of large-scale street festivals at appropriate moments in Ho Chi Minh City.

In addition to advertising Ao Dai (Vietnamese traditional long dress), artists also presented the unique qualities of cultural and art renditions imbued with Vietnamese identities to millions of Chingay participants and spectators through graceful traditional dances.

About 6,500 performers took part in this year’s Chingay parade, the 46th of its kind. The 2018 event left strong impressions on attendees with featured performances from cultural inserts of Singapore and countries around the world, including vibrant floats, dancing dragons, prancing lions, stilt walkers, circus and magic, performers of different races in their traditional costumes, and many more.

This was the third time that Viet Nam has joined the event.
