Chinatown is once again beautifully decorated with street light-up to mark the celebration of Lunar New Year. Designed by students from the Singapore University of Technology and Design, this year street light-up will feature sculptured lanterns from cub to tiger striving to achieve strength and vitality in their growing up to depict how we will stay united and emerge stronger from this Covid pandemic. Not forgetting the centrepiece between New Bridge Road and Eu Tong Sen Street that comprise a family of tigers to signify reunion, harmony and prosperity.
This year Chinatown Festival Organizing Committee is collaborating with World Wild Fund for Nature (Singapore) and Temenggong Artists in Residence. Local artists have been invited to paint different Tiger sculptures which will be displayed at various parts of Chinatown to promote the importance of global animal conservation and the environment. http://thetigersarecoming.wwf.sg/ & http://www.temenggong.sg/
