Marina Bay roared to life on Friday night (Feb 19) as the annual Chingay parade bathed the area in colourful lights, songs and dances.

The annual street procession to mark Chinese New Year is also a celebration of the diverse cultures of Singapore.

From fan dances to choral singing, this year's float parade showcased acts by 8,000 volunteers from organisations, including the Management Development Institute of Singapore, the Eurasian Association and People's Association, the event's main organiser.
