Invigorated with VIVA energy to dance together in the “City of Performing Arts”

The Macao International Parade is one of the main events in celebration of Macao’s Return to the Motherland, gathering performing groups from around the world and extraordinary local artists in the city, singing and dancing in their distinctive costumes and styles along the bustling streets filled with a rich cultural atmosphere. Highlighting Macao’s unique cultural landscape and engaging residents and tourists in the festive vibes, the groups will spread the spirit of “Love, Peace and Cultural Integration” and promote cultural and artistic interaction and exchange, adding joy to Macao’s return to the motherland!

This year, the Parade’s mascot VIVA will travel to a magical and mysterious planet with the public. With the performance energy gained during its space exploration journey, VIVA will return to Macao and create a new magical stage, bringing an immersive artistic experience for the audience to enjoy in this City of Performing Arts!
