THE EVENING rainfall did not deter over 1,500 people from visiting the Field of Lights carnival in Bandar Baru Sri Klebang.
Held last Sunday, the event was to celebrate the township’s 15th anniversary as waves and waves of people began pouring in, despite the rain.
The event saw the illumination of over 400 frosted glass spheres, cubes and pyramids of various sizes that were spread across a field at the township, off Jalan Kuala Kangsar.
A giant Christmas tree was also lit up during the opening ceremony by Kinta Properties Sdn Bhd Director Datuk Lim Si Boon.
Lim said the event was organised for the community at the township.
“I hope they like it since there have not been much night activities here for some time.
“If the response is good, maybe we’ll continue having it until Chinese New Year,” he said.
Lim said they have created a vibrant new township, transforming an unused rubber estate into a well connected community.
“We have developed a place for people to live, learn and play.
“The environment is brighter, it is a space that people can enjoy and feel safe,” he said.
“The lights are different shapes and sizes to represent the diverse communities that already bring so much sparkle to this growing garden township,” he added.
Apart from the spectacular lights, there were also musical performances, food trucks and a Christmas market.
The lights, musical performances, market and food trucks would be held over the weekends starting on Friday until Jan 1 from 7.30pm to 11pm.
