The city is often referred to as "Surf City" because of this high profile event, its history and culture of surfing. It is often called the "Surfing Capital of the World", not for the height of the waves, but rather for the consistent quality of surf. Gordon Duane established the city's first surf shop, Gordie's Surfboards, in 1955.

Huntington Beach is also a popular destination for kite surfing, and this sport can be viewed on the beach northwest of the pier. Huntington Beach is the host city of the National Professional Paintball League Super 7 Paintball Championships.

Singapore Chinese New Year Chingay Parade 2012 Live Stream CNY Feed Lunar Festival

Regarded as the oldest and most important festival in the Chinese calendar, the Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year, began as a traditional celebration to welcome the harvest of spring.

In Singapore, it is an occasion that marks the importance of family ties and happiness. Preparations for the Chinese New Year start as early as a month ahead, with festive decorations and the liveliest celebrations taking place at Chinatown and Marina Bay. Chinatown Chinese New Year Celebrations, River Hongbao 2012 and Chingay Parade Singapore are part of the inaugural Spring Festival Singapore. The theme for the celebration this year is “Passing on the Light”, which represents the significance of passing on cultural heritage and accumulated wisdom to future generations. So head down for unforgettable festivities with bright lights, fantastic food and a joyous time. The Chingay Parade is a traditional Chinese New Year procession that has evolved in recent years to become a massive street parade, boasting a stunning array of dancers, street floats, lion and dragon dancers, among others.

The parade has its origins in China, where similar processions were held for two weeks after the Lunar New Year to welcome the season of spring. The name “Chingay” was coined from its Hokkien dialect equivalent, meaning “the art of costume and masquerade”, and is a longstanding tradition dating back to 1973, when the first parade was organised.
