It was one hell of a rainy morning during COSMO Youth Parade 2010 but the folks were still busily preparing for the event and when the rain stopped, the events kick into full gear. Moods weren’t dampened and lots of people joined the event.
COSMO Youth Parade is part of SHINE Youth festival, organised by the National Youth Council and supported by the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports. It is a festival that has become an iconic youth event in Singapore.
*SCAPE – Embrace The New
The festival launch was held in *SCAPE located in Orchard with 12 hours of fun and events. It was mainly separated into 3 locations around the place, one of which was outside Cineleisure. Shops such as KKNM, Kurocha and many featured shops were in the event along with Bushiroad TCG.

Various icons and lots of teens joined in the parade as they walked around the area near *SCAPE, starting from the main stage in SCAPE, and outside of Takashimaya before heading back. It was pretty an awesome sight as tourists, locals and the drivers go snapping happy. It was a pretty awesome sight and here are some photos of the parade.
