Into its 24th year, River Hongbao 2010 will usher in the year of the Tiger with a big bang. This is the second time River Hongbao will be held on The Float @ Marina Bay (previously known as Marina Bay Floating Platform). The festivities will last throughout for 9 days from 12th to 20th February 2010 with the closing on the 7th day of the Chinese New Year. In addition, unlike last year, the opening hours would be extended to start from 12 noon daily and continue all the way into the night and close at 11:30pm (except for the night of CNY Eve with countdown).
The theme of River Hongbao 2010 will be 推“成”促“新”迎虎年which means “Welcoming the Year of the Tiger through promotion of Chengdu to enhance the offering of River Hongbao in Singapore and promote close ties and collaboration between Singapore and Chengdu City“ in Chinese. This is the first time River Hongbao is supported by a Government to Government level collaboration through Singapore-Sichuan Trade and Investment Committee. The MOU for the collaboration was signed on 10 Nov 09 between the River Hongbao 2010 Organising Committee and Chengdu City Government.
