colourful balloons to be released into the sky

Thousands of colourful balloons were released into the night sky as Ipoh Parade’s animated graphics façade was illuminated through power generated from the pedalling of three exercycles by VIPs of the evening, guest-of-honour YB Dato’ Dr. Mah Hang Soon (Perak State EXCO member), Mr. Thomas Kong (Director of Portfolio Management for ARA Asset Management Ltd.) and Mr. Chan Yu Yin (Ipoh Parade Centre Manager).

Witnessed by scores of shoppers, the event, Ipoh Parade’s very own Festival of Lights, marked a major milestone for the complex and celebrated the completion of a year of refurbishment and upgrading works to the mall, at a cost of some RM100 million.

Ipoh Parade, which first opened its doors for business in 1994, has been a major shopping landmark in Ipoh. With this modern transformation, it has strengthened its position as a premier retail destination in the city, offering even more brands for discerning shoppers.

In conjunction with this Festival of Lights, shoppers were able to participate in plenty of activities in a carnival-like atmosphere inside and outside of the mall, from simple fun-fair games to large inflatables and witness stunt performances by fire-eaters, illusions by street magicians, clown entertainment and lots more.
