These included traditional decorations, interactive handcrafts, ethnic shows and mascots. Special Chinese-themed decorations include a 10m x 3m wall, fully decorated with lit up Chinese lanterns, a photo opportunity with Chinese uniforms for guests and a number of live handicrafts and artefacts.

A lion dance and a Chinese drumming show as well as a dramatic face change show are creating a vibrant ambiance at Celebration Walk. Inflatable Chinese mascots are very popular amongst guests to take memorable pictures with. All through the day, guests can interact with Chinese artefact artists who exhibit their skills at Chinese paper fan drawing, opera masks painting, making fortune bracelets, as well as creative and unique figures from palm tree leaves and steel.

For the four-day celebration period, guests are not only being entertained but also gain a deeper understanding of Chinese culture while kids are learning about traditional crafts as well.
