The 2024 Macao International Parade took place on Sunday before thousands of enthusiastic spectators lining the streets.

According to a local government handout, this year’s parade featured over 1,800 performers in over 80 performance groups from Macao, Hong Kong, Shenzhen and overseas. Among the foreign ensembles were groups from Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique, Togo, France, Spain, Norway, the United Kingdom and Italy.

Performers, who competed for prizes running from best costumes to best theme, departed from the Ruins of St. Paul’s, passed through the Historic Centre of Macao and Senado Square to arrive at the Avenida Panorâmica do Lago Nam Van, where a carnival was in full swing, featuring games, booths and workshops.
