KUALA LUMPUR: Me­dia Prima’s Wow Car­ni­val turned Bukit Jalil Na­tional Sta­dium into a sea of peo­ple, as some 200,000 peo­ple took part in fes­tiv­i­ties.

The two-day event, or­gan­ised by Me­dia Prima Bhd in con­junc­tion with the Umno 71st an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions, fea­tured food trucks, con­certs and in­ter­ac­tive ac­tiv­i­ties.

Vis­i­tors were spoilt for choice with more than 200 food trucks apart from stalls sell­ing clothes, bags and other lo­cal prod­ucts.

Many took the op­por­tu­nity to take part in a range of car­ni­val ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing street soc­cer and “juara tim­bang”.

Aniza Mohd Salleh, 30, from Sun­gai Besi, said she was “dragged” to the car­ni­val by her two sons af­ter they saw an ad­ver­tise­ment for the event on tele­vi­sion.

“I promised yes­ter­day to bring them, and they are so ex­cited to par­tic­i­pate in the ac­tiv­i­ties to­day.

“They woke up early and were so ea­ger to try out the games (when we got here),” she said.

Muham­mad Ab­duh Has­san, 30, from Klang said he en­joyed the at­mo­sphere.

Ridzwan Ab­dul Rahim, 19, from Bant­ing, said the cloudy weather made it a per­fect day for hang­ing out.

“If you visit the right booth at the right time, you can get some re­ally good deals,” said Ridzwan, who snapped up two car­tons of Sun­quick fruit juice for only RM10 per car­ton dur­ing a one­hour flash sale.
