F.U.N. Gathering of Spring Specialists

[written and compiled by KopiOkaya]

Since 1994, Spring In The City has been enhancing the Chinese New Year festive mood in Singapore,  bringing a host of quality cultural performances and unique arts and crafts demonstrations from China. This annual festive celebration has evolved into an iconic event with a great pool of followers. Many of whom are F.U.N. spring specialists eager to be fascinated and indulged by the daily performances.

This year, several arts schools and acrobatics troupes performed at two popular shopping venues in Singapore – Raffles City Shopping Centre and VivoCity. At Raffles City, there were a series modern and traditional dance from Jiangsu Nantong Arts Theatre, Hangzhou Arts School, Huang Sujia Dancing Art School and China Yunan Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese Arts Troupe. Whereas over at VivoCity, a different mix of performances were held at the open-air amphitheatre – a new venue giving both the audiences and F.U.N. specialists many refreshing experiences. An array of spectacular performances from Hua Yi Arts (a local arts troupe), China Yunan Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese Arts Troupe and Xiamen Magical Min’nan Arts Troupe were installed to wow the spectators.

On behalf of all F.U.N. spring specialists, I would like to express our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to the organizers Golden Travel Services, Raffles City Shopping Centre and VivoCity on their commitment and enthusiasm in making this festive celebration a joyous and exciting one.

Without further ado, let me present the works from our  “spring specialists”.
