Past Events
Dragon Boat Festival Celebration
Chinatown Business Association celebrated Dragon Boat Festival on the 6th May 2017 at Kreta Ayer Square, with a rice dumpling tasting event. As part of the celebration, we organized a few activities and performances for the event. We welcomed the arrival of our Guest-Of-Honour Dr Lily Neo with a lion dance performance.
Opened to the public with free admission, our main highlight of the event was the food tasting segment where participants sampled the rice dumplings offered by different merchants. Other highlights included the lucky draw, and cultural dance performance.

We hope everyone enjoyed themselves that evening!
