Organised by the Kreta Ayer-Kim Seng Citizens' Consultative Committee, this year's Chinese New Year Celebrations at Chinatown is themed "Year of Prosperity & Success, 桃满花香牛车水, 灵猴迎春贺新岁". From 16 January to 8 March 2016, this predominantly Chinese enclave will spring to life with 2,668 handcrafted lanterns in the shape of monkeys, peaches, spring blossoms and gold zodiac coins – the most number of customised lanterns to be produced for the street light-up. In partnership with the Singapore University of Technology and Design for the fifth time, the light-up will also feature 28 mechanical monkey lanterns.
Other events include a festive bazaar, the Chinatown Chinese New Year Walking Trail, 9th International Lion Dance Competition, and Chinatown Chinese New Year Countdown Party.
