COLOURFUL lights and laughter filled the air as children proudly showed their handmade lanterns by walking around the Bukit Sentosa town in conjunction with the annual Lantern Festival recently.
Organised by Bukit Sentosa MCA branch, the event saw the participation of more than 300 people.
Accompanying them was Selangor state executive councillor and Hulu Selangor MCA division chairman Datuk Ch’ng Toh Eng.
There was a lion dance performance, a lucky draw and a performance by a children’s choir.
“It was a special night for residents here as everyone got to know each other and tried a variety of mooncakes,” said organising chairman Tan Poh Chin.
“This festival is very meaningful. We must educate our children about its history in order to uphold our rich culture,” said Ch’ng at the launch. Later, Ch’ng presented prizes to winners of the lantern design competition.
