Spoilt for choice at Wow Carnival
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.
The event brought various contents, programme and activities and artistes closer to their target audience.
