This year I went to the Purple Parade which was a choice I never regret. If you’re wondering what this Purple Parade is about, the Purple Parade is a movement in Singapore that supports the inclusion and celebrates the abilities of persons with special needs. The reason why its purple its because it symbolises for people with special needs. The Purple Parade was a carnival style typed of parade, ranging from stage performances to games and to even merchandise stalls! When I was walking around the merchandise stalls, I was amazed to see that there were people with special needs drawing such amazing artworks. There are photos below that show them drawing! Even stars like Stephanie Sun and Zhou Chu Ming came down to support this wonderful event! If you had missed this year's Purple Parade, let's hope that there would be another one next year so you guys can come down and support!
1 thing that really made me smile was the performances put up by people with special needs. The most fun and enjoyable thing about the Purple Parade was the performance. The performance put up by people with special needs was just so appealing. Despite the performers' shortcomings, they were still able to pull off a better job than I imagined. Do check out the photos I took during my time at the Purple Parade below.
