Members of the public are invited to vote for the “most popular” performance through the parade’s website or by scanning QR codes along the parade route. According to a government handout, voters will also have a chance to win a return economy ticket to any destination serviced by Air Macau.

In addition to the parade, there will be a parade photo contest, inviting residents aged 12 and over to submit up to five photographs capturing the spirit of the event. Submissions must be made by 8 April.

The parade is scheduled to start at the Ruins of St Paul’s Ruins and end at Sai Van Lake Square.
