River Hong Bao 2015 (春到河畔2015)

It was indeed grand celebration on the CNY and the ceremony light up which started on the 17th Feb 2015 managed by Mr Lee Hsien Loong on marking the beginning on the 12-day festival. Mostly Singaporeans would visit this place once every year on CNY to celebrate on their special year as Singapore's 50 years on Independence and Lunar New Year together.
I was blessed to visit on the six day of CNY at River Hong Bao 2015.
River Hong Bao's FoodStreet
On reaching the destination, I was surprised to see a makeshift tent as high as if it was a towering hilltop with vast variety of local delicacies - Bak Kut Teh, Hainanese Chicken Rice..etc that served at the River Hong Bao's FoodStreet which many people, young and old alike would love to eat.
Gateway Arch (entrance)
Entrance to the River HongBao float gateway to the amazing lanterns, God of Fortune, SG50 Giant Mural Wall, Lion Dance Cheers!,Giant Pine tree, Heritage Playground, Merdeka Bridge, 12 Zodiac and Wishing Well and to name a few. Great foods, lovely colourful atmosphere has allowed many people to see something new in the beginning.
