Start of the Nine Emperor God Festival - Hougang Dou Mu Gong 17 Oct 09

It's time of the year again. I dropped by the Hougang Dou Mu Gong and caught a glimpse of the start of the procession to receive the gods. I have also taken pictures of the festival schedule. Interestingly, the emphasis this year is Racial Harmony which is a chief theme of the leading float. The festivities also involve a procession of the gods to a Catholic church, a Hindu temple and a mosque on 21 Oct.
