From the 6th to the 9th of February, all the wildlife parks – Jurong Bird Park, the River Safari and the Singapore Zoo will be putting up lion dance performances on high poles, no less! The Night Safari’s lion dance will be especially beautiful to behold as the performers will be adding in LED lights for extra effect.
