In conjunction with this Festival, Sian Chye Tong Temple in Hye Keat Estate, Air Itam hosted a mini floats procession together with 4 other temples in the same area on the evening of Friday, 19th October 2012.
Sian Chye Tong is well-known for its beautifully-decorated floats during religious festivals and on this occasion, it was no exception. Their float featured a 10m long dragon with 2 smaller dragons measuring 4m each. There were yellow lanterns and LED lights which was just an awesome sight to behold.
