IT WAS a carnival-like atmosphere in Westpost, Port Klang, on Saturday night when more than 60,000 people thronged the parking bays to show their support towards Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
People from all over Selangor started arriving as early as 5pm and two hours later, the traffic leading to the area was barely moving.
No one was complaining as they were there to reinforce their support for the Barisan Nasional.
Thousands of youths on bikes formed a nearly 10km-long motorcade to welcome Najib.
The event was organised by the Federation of Chinese Descendants of Selangor, who also prepared more than 5,000 tables for the guests.
Also present were MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek, deputy president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, Selangor MCA chief Datuk Donald Lim and international actress Datuk Seri Michelle Yeoh and organising chairman Tan Sri Ta Kin Yan.
The event also made in into the Malaysia Book of Records for having the most number of people at a sit-down dinner event.
