In light of the pensive mood marking the fasting month descending upon Muslims, Klang Parade thus organises the inaugural Fiesta Klang Parade to enliven the atmosphere with a variety of show-stopping performances by acclaimed celebrities like Anuar Zain and Adibah Noor to complement other exciting events and activities happening in the mall throughout the month of June/July.
While Fiesta Klang Parade gets live on 13 June, Saturday, the main event commenced on 14 June, Sunday at 2:30pm, whereby shoppers would be entreated to an opening performance by Azizi Zakaria of the DiGi Celebriteen fame.
Elizabeth Tan, the YouTube starlet who rose to fame last year for her rendition of Sudirman’s Tanggal 31, followed suit and was accompanied by Rejuvenate Dance Crew, who pop, lock, and break it to the tune of Tan’s latest single, “Knock Knock”.
Here’s what happened that late afternoon. Adibah Noor took the stage and performed a couple of her most memorable hits before passing the microphone on to Anuar Zain.
It is a rare sight to have a couple of Malaysia’s most recognisable names in the entertainment industry perform at the same location on the same day, so be sure to catch them during their brief stay at Fiesta Klang Parade.
Other Highlights during Klang Parade Fiesta:
*Baki Zainal hosts the fiesta! He’ll be working closely with deejays from Suria FM to excite shoppers the entire day.
*Suria FM Wheelers will also be present to play games with shoppers and to provide giveaways.
For the first time, Klang Parade will alsp launch its very own Flea Market to coincide with the fiesta over the weekend, featuring a myriad of novelty items for sale.
A Trick Art Gallery is also up on the First Floor (4 – 30 June) and shoppers are invited to participate in a “Snap and Win” Instagram contest. All participants have to do is simply snap a photograph of themselves at the gallery then upload them to their Instagram accounts with the hashtags #KlangParade and #TrickArt. Prizes worth RM3,000 are up for grabs for the most creative and funniest entries, and results will be announced at the end of the month.
Klang Parade’s very own Bazaar Ramadan kicks off from 12 June and will last till 15 July. Still not too late to hop over there for the bazaar people 😉
The Fiesta Klang Parade isn’t a departure from the mall’s usual offerings but rather a continuation of the retail centre’s commitment to provide more appealing opportunities for a wider audience. Understanding the holy month for Muslims can be a rather sedate affair, the fiesta was thus organised to exhilarate shoppers even before they begin to fast.
