New Straits Times - - News -

SHAH ALAM: The Ecoworld Car­ni­val, which takes place to­day, of­fers var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties to vis­i­tors. The event is held to com­ple­ment the New Straits Times C-Cy­cle Chal­lenge, which will be flagged off at Eco World Gallery @ Eco Grandeur in the morn­ing.

Eco World head of sales and mar­ket­ing Tiong Siow Yin said the car­ni­val was held to give the res­i­dents a sense of be­long­ing to the grow­ing Pun­cak Alam com­mu­nity.

“We are cre­at­ing a bond be­tween the res­i­dents here and the pub­lic, who will be our fu­ture buy­ers. So, we call it a com­mu­nity event that pro­motes unity among our res­i­dents and the other res­i­dents in the area.”

“Eco World found that there is a large num­ber of cy­clists who are

liv­ing in the area, and C–Cy­cle will def­i­nitely be a great event for them. And the car­ni­val is suit­able for fam­i­lies and chil­dren who come to sup­port the cy­clists.”

Tiong said Ecoworld ex­pected 3,000 vis­i­tors dur­ing the NST CCy­cle Chal­lenge, based on their ex­pe­ri­ence in or­gan­is­ing pre­vi­ous events.

Ac­tiv­i­ties were lined up to al­low fam­i­lies to have fun while wait­ing for the mem­bers to com­plete their rides. Some of the items brought in for the ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded retro ar­cade ma­chines, an in­flat­able fut­sal pitch and a bi­cy­cle-pow­ered juicer.

Bi­cy­cles are also avail­able free of charge for vis­i­tors to have fun rides. There are also Volk­swa­gen cars avail­able for test drives.

Vis­i­tors will also be able to view the Eco Grandeur gallery and the com­pleted show houses there.

The car­ni­val is tar­geted at fam­i­lies of the 1,200 cy­clists par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Cen­tury Ride and Fun Ride.

Cy­clists par­tic­i­pat­ing in the two rides have been given a RM5,000 re­bate voucher to be used for a pur­chase of a res­i­den­tial unit at Eco Grandeur.

There will also be free flow of pop­corn and candy floss. Chil­dren can par­tic­i­pate in a free sand art work­shop.

Six food trucks of­fer­ing ice­cream, cof­fee, burger and sa­tay, among oth­ers, will be on lo­ca­tion. There will also be a cold-pressed fruit juice stall.

The car­ni­val, which starts at 9.30am at the com­pound of the sales gallery, is open to all.
