The last week of October is knocking at the door with its bag full of treats. You know it will be a magnanimous celebration when two festivities fall around the same time - IT IS DEEPAVALI AND HALLOWEEN TIME FOLKS! Take out your most stunning outfit as well as spookiest costume and get ready for a week full of fun. Given below is a list of family-friendly events that are taking place all around Kuala Lumpur during this time. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your family and join the merriment.
From gorgeous Indian dresses to beautiful accessories, the pop-up stalls in the Deepavali bazaars all over KL have it all. Dress up like Kareena Kapoor or light firecrackers, whatever it is on your mind this Deepavali weekend, you are sure to have a blast shopping at these roadside stores.
Where – Jalan Masjid India and Brickfields
When – 6 pm to midnight
How to go – It can get very crowded in the evenings and hence finding parking can be a hassle. So, we advise taking public transport since both these locations are conveniently accessible by buses and trains.
If crowded Deepavali bazaars are not your thing, you can have a gala time going shopping mall hopping. Most malls will have extravagant Deepavali decorations put up that are mesmerising to look at. From colourful Kolam to lights, these malls dress themselves up beautifully to ring in the festival of lights with style. Many shopping malls also host various activities, workshops and Deepavali carnivals.
Where – Pavillion KL, Central Market, IOI Mall Puchong, Sunway Pyramid
When – 10 am to 10 pm
Halloween @Gamuda Cove
For the next two weekends, it is Halloween at Gamuda Cove. The entry is free and there are numerous fun-filled activities to keep you and your family entertained. There will also be a food bazaar to satiate your appetite.
Where – Gamuda Cove Experience Gallery, Bandar Gamuda Cove.
When – 26 – 27 Oct and 2 – 3 Nov from 4 pm to 10 pm.
