SINGAPORE: Residents at Punggol North celebrated racial and religious harmony with a street parade at Punggol Field.

Part of the Punggol Field road was closed on Sunday as residents brought celebrations to the streets.

This annual street parade allows residents from different races to learn more about different cultures and beliefs.

This year, some 3,300 people came together to put up a mass Cha Cha dance item in attempt to break a Guinness World Record.

Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean, who is the MP for Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC, outlined several upcoming developments in Punggol for the residents to enjoy - including Punggol Waterway and Punggol Promenade.

But he said beyond physical facilities, the most important thing is to build a community spirit and have the residents feel that Punggol is home.
