Mardi Gras dancers in bejewelled costumes strutted to hypnotic rhythms from batucada drummers. Capoeira dancers executed leaps while the crowd cheered, caught up in the atmosphere.
From the beginning of the evening, it was clear it would be a night to remember.
The New Paper celebrated its 25th birthday in style on Friday night, throwing a Mardi Gras-themed celebration at The Courtyard, Robertson Walk.
The crowd danced and clapped their hands, enthusiastically cheering. These were but a few of the memorable moments that took place on the festivities as The New Paper celebrated its 25th birthday in a big way.
People were packing into the space, braving the slight drizzle midway through the night.
Senior sales consultant Ken Tan, 33, and his wife Mavis Heng, 35, were among those present. Mr Tan described the party as “electrifying”, saying: “You got fantastic music. You got great drinks.”
Here are some pictures from the event.
