Towering fun for all in the family

SHOPPERS will find plenty to marvel during the three-day Komtar Carnival 2019 from May 3 to 5.

It will feature various activities, showcases and workshops at different locations throughout Levels 1 to 5 at Komtar, The Top and ICT Digital Mall in Komtar.

Komtar assemblyman Teh Lai Heng said the carnival would be the biggest that the constituency has ever organised in Komtar.

“It is an opportunity for us to prove that Komtar still has the competitiveness as a shopping mall, and to attract more shoppers to visit and have fun with their family.

“There will also be activities at Komtar Level 4, where the public seldom visit these days.

“We hope this carnival will be the largest programme we have ever had at our iconic state landmark — Komtar,” he said during a press conference at Komtar recently.
