Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) will present the mega celebration event — “2022 Parade for Celebration of the Year of the Tiger” at the central and northern districts on the 3rd day (3 February) and 12th day (12 February) of Lunar New Year respectively to celebrate the Spring Festival with residents and visitors. A series of fascinating event highlights will unfold, including warm-up and opening performances, float parade, cultural and artistic performances, fireworks shows, float exhibition and online game.
Under the theme of “Turning the Fortune by the mighty Tiger”, the 2022 Parade for Celebration of the Year of the Tiger will revolve around a story of the Tiger General’s victory over a winged (epidemic) beast. A multimedia dance drama under the same theme will weave the dazzling floats and wonderful performances by various teams into a splendid extravaganza. A grand opening ceremony will be held at 8 p.m. on the third night (3 February) of Lunar New Year, bringing together guest performers as well as local and Mainland performance teams.
Three fireworks shows will spark greater joy
A fireworks show will dazzle the skyline above the sea area overlooked by Macau Tower at 9:45 p.m. on the 3rd night of Lunar New Year, conveying festive blessings and wishes for the Olympic Games Beijing 2022 to be smoothly held. In addition, two other fireworks shows will take place at 9 p.m. on the 7th day (7 February, “Renri”) of Lunar New Year as well as Lantern Festival (15 February) respectively to spark greater festive joy for Chinese New Year.
Float exhibition for free enjoyment
The floats of the Parade will be on display at the seafront next to Macao Science Center from 4 – 11 February and at Tap Seac Square from 13 – 20 February for free enjoyment of residents and visitors.
