A call has gone out to artistic troupes, schools, community organisations and institutions in Macao to join the Parade for Celebration of the Chinese New Year 2023.

The Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) plans to host the event on 24 January and 28 January, the third and seventh days of the Lunar New Year, to celebrate with members of the public in the central and northern districts. The event will feature highlights such as the float parade, cultural and artistic performances as well as a float exhibition. Applications are open until 17 November.

Performance groups will participate in the float parade from 8 pm-10 pm on 24 January, starting from Sai Van Lake Square, moving along Avenida Dr Sun Yat-Sen until they reach the Macao Science Centre. Each stop on the parade route requires each group to give a short performance. They must also attend rehearsals and the traditional worship ceremony.

The parade’s theme will be the rabbit. By bringing out its characteristics and love for challenges, “the event is set to convey wishes for the diversification and prosperity of the local industries as the economy moves forwards with new momentum” in Macao, the MGTO said.

Applicants and performance groups will be appraised by the organiser according to the “theme and idea, local distinctive elements, uniqueness and attractiveness, relevance to the event, as well as the groups’ performance experiences”. 

The groups will be granted performance fees according to their proposal content, the number of performers and props, The Macau Post Daily reported.
