RESORTS World Genting will be hosting its first Starlight Carnival, a unique open-air festival, from Oct 10.

The month-long event will feature four key elements - movies, music, food and games at the hilltop's Century Lake Park.

“The Starlight Carnival is our way to creating an idyllic setting for an unforgettable evening,

“We are in the tropics, so Malaysia’s hot weather is not always conducive for open-air events but here in Resorts World Genting, the weather is cool all year round, making us the perfect place to hold a European-style al fresco carnival," said Resorts World Genting Leisure and Hospitality executive vice-president Datuk Edward Holloway.

The attractions at the Starlight Carnival are as varied as they are entertaining.

"We have worked very hard to put together a fantastic line-up of films, food and fun activities to provide hours of entertainment for a broad range of guests, from couples to families," said Holloway.

At the Carnival Cinema, a red carpet of blockbuster movies - including A Star is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, Jersey Boys, Mamma Mia & The Greatest Showman - will play out on a super-sized pop-up screen for guests to lay back on beanbags and cushions to enjoy.

Visitors can enjoy the open-air ‘Movie Under The Stars’ or grab a bite at the many gourmet food trucks and dining options scattered across the carnival area.

Resorts World Genting will also be showcasing some of the latest additions to its F&B suite such as FUHU by Zouk and Harry Ramsden.

From sunset onwards, the Starlight Carnival will also be a space filled with melodies.

A talented line-up of musicians, including Aidan Soloist, VIBES, McBE Duo and Double Aze, will take to the pop-up Gazebo stage to provide the soundtrack and mood for the twilight fiesta.

Test your luck and skills at a variety of game kiosks such as Shooting Star, Milky Way Spin, Asteroid Toss, Topple Galaxies and Pick A Star.

The Starlight Carnival takes place every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from Oct 10 until Nov 2.

The last weekend of October is equally exciting as the carnival will be given a scary season makeover from Oct 31 to Nov 2.

Expect the same fantastic combo of film, food, fiesta and fun as before, but with a new spooky veneer as the Starlight Carnival embraces Halloween with jack o’lanterns, zombies, cobwebs and all the

other elements of a truly scary Halloween evening.

Tickets are priced at RM20 for general admission with a RM4 processing fee, while children below 12 enter for free.

Those who are in for some party time can head to Resorts World Genting's version of a Bavarian festival at the Oktoberfest Hall, held at a separate area of the carnival where guests can try up to 19 types of premium beers to pair with a special selection of food.
