Parade for Celebration of the Year of the Rat

27.1.2020 & 1.2.2020

In the Chinese Feng Shui custom, the 2020 Gengzi Year of the Rat is believed to be “a good year for tying the knot” because of its leap month of solar-spring term. In light of this, the float parade is themed with the story of a big wedding party of the Rats through aerial dance and acrobatics. At the evening of the third day of Chinese New Year, friends from around the world will join us in the celebration to spread joy and cheers with their dazzling floats and exciting performances.
