These are the nostalgia photos of 1992 River Hongbao in Singapore. The River Hong Bao is one of the most eagerly awaited carnivals during Chinese New Year in Singapore. The crowds here are waiting for the fireworks. In years past, the fireworks went off on many nights. During the day, visitors could visit River Hongbao and get the chance to taste unique delicacies from China and watch demonstration and buy handicrafts. At night, the Float would be transformed with beautifully crafted lanterns and lighting installations against the magnificent backdrop of Marina Bay. In addition to the traditionally popular lanterns such as God of Fortune, Chinese Zodiac, visitors can look forward to taking photos with the many “Big Pictures” with local flavours so as to create their own precious photo memories on-site with their loved ones. These photos to contribute to Singapore Memory portal for everyone to share and enjoy. There will also be cultural activities such as nightly Chinese riddle-guessing. Calligraphy and Photography competitions would also be held. Children would be able to enjoy themselves too at the children’s funland. Therefore, River Hongbao will definitely be a memorable, cultural and educational event not to be missed.
