With 2014 drawing to a close, many are gearing up to celebrate the start of a brand new year! Over at Mutiara Damansara Commercial Centre (MDCC), comprising the Curve, eCurve and IPC Shopping Centre, New Year’s Eve is about to take on a whole new level of family fun and beyond.
MDCC this time around will be the site of the first-ever Night Fun Run to be held on New Year’s Eve in Malaysia! Runners are able to sign up for one of five different categories: 5km Men’s (competitive), 5km Women’s (competitive), 3.8km Men’s (non-competitive), 3.8km Women’s (non-competitive) or 3.8km Families (non-competitive).
Adding to the merriment, mascots from Kidzania, one of the Supporting Partners, and IPC Shopping Centre will be on-hand to flag-off the runners at 9.00pm. All participants will receive a finisher’s medal and light refreshments after completing their run. Top 5 finishers in the competitive Men’s and Women’s categories will take home a special Finisher’s Trophy, entry tickets to KidZania and cash vouchers from Brooks Sports Wear.
Families can also enjoy the Street Carnival stretching through the entire length of Jalan PJU 7/2, the street between IPC Shopping Centre and the Curve, truly getting visitors ready for a fiesta. Divided into three different zones, the Carnival will be a favourite for all ages, with a wide range of fun activities to be enjoyed starting from 6.00pm onwards. There will also be a range of Harvey Norman home products worth up to RM50,000 to be won during the night!
Little ones will love Kids Land, where inflatable castles will give them the chance to bounce the night away! Then there’s Fun Land, where Carnival-goers will get to challenge each other at games, try out various activities from face painting to caricature art, and even catch stilt-walkers, jugglers and human statues in action! Last but not least, Party Land will round off the night thanks to Emcees Shaz and Nigel Green, as well as a spectacular line-up of up-and-coming local Malaysian acts.
From electro-pop band Paperplane Pursuit, to critically-acclaimed musician OJ Law, as well as Anugerah Industri Muzik (AIM) Best New Artist nominees Kyoto Protocol joining fellow artistes An Honest Mistake, The Big Band and Narmi, the line-up at MDCC’s New Year’s Eve concert is an exciting blast of sound and song that will have heads bobbing and feet moving to the beat from 8.30pm to midnight!
Visitors will surely be spoilt for choice with the variety of great activities to take part in. Whatever your choice, be it run, party or play, everything will culminate in a grand display of fireworks, right on the stroke of midnight!
Jazmi Kamarudin, Centre Manager of the Curve, said, “This is the first time our visitors will get to experience a Street Carnival and Fun Run on New Year’s Eve. It will certainly be a not-to-be-missed gathering here at MDCC! All of us are looking forward to welcoming the New Year with our best celebration yet.”
“We have always wanted to give our visitors and patrons an out-of-the-box event to enjoy, and we believe this year our collaborative effort will certainly achieve that goal!” added Azizul Hisham Ahmad, Centre Manager of eCurve. “This will truly be a memorable way to ring in 2015 in style, and we invite everyone to join us at MDCC for a great bash.”
Centre Manager of IPC Shopping Centre, Evelyn Tan, explained, “Our vision for the MDCC New Year’s Eve party is ‘A Celebration of Togetherness’. Being the Chairperson this year, we have strived to create a fun and unforgettable atmosphere, which is why we chose to organise a Street Carnival and Fun Run for families and friends to enjoy as we all celebrate the New Year together!”
