Red FM marketing and corporate communications executive Yong Ju Li said the team would conduct several fun games such as ‘Superhero’ and ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ for the crowd.
“They are all very entertaining games. We will also have a Q&A session during which we will ask questions related to the event or the organiser.
“Participants who answer the simple questions correctly will win prizes,” she said, adding that prizes include goodie bags and CDs.
The fest, from 6pm to 10pm, will be broadcast live on Red FM.
