Various activities await visitors, families at Ecoworld Carnival
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.
