Last Sunday, 21 July, was Racial Harmony Day. And Punggol North held their annual Street Parade along our blocks of flat! It was quite a happening event. And I must say, the organisers must be happy to see it so successful! Sharing some of the photos taken that day. And be warned, its a super image intensive post!
“Look Ma! No cars! I’m in the middle of the road.”

When there are free activities, free games, free food and drinks and free play, there guarantee will be huge crowds and long queues! Happy to see that fellow Punggol neighbors are an orderly bunch and queue patiently despite the humid weather.
Jumping castle fun for the kids
Bungee jump for the older kids
Flea Market stalls for those who fancy shopping for some knick knacks
Free balloons sculpture for those who queued
And there were many minions spotted floating around in the air! These are specially made for the parade, sadly Ayra didn’t manage to bring one home.
A nice lady gave Ayra one of the flower balloon after we borrowed her minion to snap some photos. See the smile on this little girl’s face? So happy!
Free mini boat ride behind the hardcourt
Coconut bowling game
Face painting and you get to choose from lots of design!
Airbrush tattoo is a popular one among the crowd
Ermmm… fish catching?
Check out the long queues for free food and drinks!
Harley gang graced the street parade too! And this is one cool female rider!
Foldies from Punggol!

With blasting and groovy music at the parade, the little dancer just had to boogee! And her Grandma placed her on stage with the other kids, she danced, jumped and enjoyed herself much!
Let’s clap our hands yeah!
Hey you! Why aren’t you dancing?!
As usual, Mummy me must capture some of her in action on video! Here’s a compiled clip of her boogeeing on stage. 😛
Alright, all these dancing is really tiring me out…
After all the dancing and jumping on stage, Ayra was too tired to even walk when we were going for dinner. By the time we reached Punggol Plaza, she only had enough energy to peel and stick stickers I bought her from the flea market.
We’re happy we finally managed to partake in a community celebration after moving in for almost a year. Looks like we have moved into the happening area within Punggol! Looking forward to more celebrations and events in our neighbourhood!
