Laughter of children and even adults reverberated throughout AEON Kinta City on Sunday, as shoppers were tickled by the many antics and performances in the first Perak largest clown gathering in celebration of Chinese New Year 2016.

The clowns certainly made a loud arrival, after performing a street parade, walking to the mall in their colourful clown costumes. Motorists, although caught by surprise, showed their support by waving, honking and flashing their headlights.

There was also a free balloon sculpting workshop where children and their parents learnt to make a poodle and a sword from balloons. Hah, now that they have the skills, they no longer have to wait for clowns to make these for them.

The highlight of the event was in the evening, when the clowns took to the stage to perform their tricks. For almost two non-stop hours, shoppers were kept in stitches as they enjoyed some good ol’ hearty fun provided by the clowns. I admit, I had not enjoyed myself this much!

To wrap up this first Perak clown gathering which was organised to celebrate Chinese New Year 2016, the clowns, fellow entertainers, God of Prosperity and the Monkey King went on a walkabout around the mall, to bring cheer to its tenants and other shoppers who were unable to be present at the main concourse.
