DEVELOPER IJM Land Bhd will hold a grand Chap Goh Meh celebration at its flagship Seremban 2 township this Saturday.
The event at the 6ha Seremban 2 City Park will be packed with colourful music and dance performances.
Jointly organised with Astro, the event themed “Seremban 2 Wonderland” will transform the neighbourhood park into a lantern-lit wonderland with a stage for a musical concert.
Astro talents and celebrities including Vivienne Oon, Phei Yong and Jie Ying will take to the stage.
Open to all, the celebration aims to foster the spirit of togetherness within the township’s multiracial community.
IJM Land senior general manager Chai Kian Soon said the Chap Goh Meh celebration had been held annually since 2014 but was put on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Our multiracial community has always been a source of pride for us, and events like this let us gather everyone under one roof to foster camaraderie.
“Additionally, it’s a way for us to express gratitude to our residents for their support over the years,” he said at a press conference.
Celebrations will kick off at 7pm with a magic show, followed by an entertaining 24-drum performance by SMJK Chan Wa.
Visitors can also participate in a fun game of Chinese riddles as well as meet and take photographs with this year’s mascot, the Rabbit.
The first 800 visitors will receive a festive gift at the redemption counter and special giveaways will also be announced throughout the evening.
The Chap Goh Meh event will end with a dazzling fireworks display at 11pm.
“This event is an annual commitment from IJM Land to its community and we hope to carry it out for years to come,” said Chai.
IJM Land will also introduce its KITARecycle Programme at the celebration.
The programme is in collaboration with SWM Environment Sdn Bhd to raise awareness on the importance of protecting the environment by cultivating good recycling habits.
