Students treated to glitzy parade at Chingay 2015 preview

SINGAPORE - Around 11,000 students were treated to the preview of Chingay 2015 on Saturday evening.

The two-hour parade of colourful floats and dazzling performances was held at the F1 Pit Building.

Themed "We love SG" this year to mark Singapore's golden jubilee, the annual Chinese New Year street procession will be held on Feb 27 and 28.

This year's parade will have the most number of international performers in its 43-year history. It will also be the biggest and youngest Chingay yet with half of its 15,000 volunteers and performers aged 35 and below.

One of the items to look forward to will be homegrown singer JJ Lin's performance during the parade's grand finale. He will be singing Dreams, which is jointly composed by him and music director Goh Kheng Long, and lyrics written by singer-songwriter Corrine May.
