With the auspicious wish of “A Thousand Lanterns, A Thousand Blessings” to all valued shoppers this festive season, more than thousand participants, be it tourists or the local community, joined this meaningful “reunion” and it was definitely a good platform to promote Malaysian Chinese culture and also at the same time, to promote racial harmony through this celebration.
No registration fees were needed for this parade, and more than 500 Magnum lanterns were given-away before the event commenced for shoppers to join in the meaningful parade. The event was broadcasted live by MELODY FM Radio Station and the crowd was entertained by the special appearances of MELODY FM announcers Wan Wai Fun and Dragon Loong. The Lantern Parade was flagged off by YB Dato' Seri Mohamed Nazri bin Abdul Aziz, Minister of Tourism and Culture Malaysia. The parade began from the Sungei Wang Plaza Main Entrance, circulating Sungei Wang Plaza together with the attractive performances by Lion & Dragon Dance troupe.
To further evoke the spirit of togetherness during shoppers’ experience at Sungei Wang Plaza, shoppers were also entertained by a 3-day Thousand Lanterns Carnival at the concourse level of Sungei Wang Plaza from 25th September (Friday) to 27th September 2015 (Sunday).
