Geylang Serai dazzles with close to 50 light installations for Hari Raya Light Up 2019.
Hari Raya Light Up 2019
From now till to 16 June 2019, Geylang Serai will be bathed in a sea of colourful lights in conjunction with the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and in the lead up to Hari Raya Puasa. Continuing the theme of “Celebrating the kampung spirit”, the dazzling display of close to 50 light installations stretches 1.8km along Changi Road, Geylang Road and Sims Avenue. The display bears icons closely related to the Malay culture, such as a mosque featuring golden domes surrounded by full blooms, a kampung house and a gendang, a traditional Malay drum.
Cultural Heritage Race 2019
As part of the Hari Raya Light Up, the Cultural Heritage Race will return on 18 May 2019. Teams of three – that include a non-Malay Singapore-born citizen and a new Singapore Citizen or Singapore Permanent Resident or Employment Pass holder – will race within the boundaries of Bazaar Raya Geylang Serai and Geylang Serai Heritage Trail to discover nuggets of information about Singapore’s Malay heritage. Prizes include vouchers worth $1,400 (1st Prize), $700 (2nd Prize) and $450 (3rd Prize). There will also be three consolation prizes with $150 worth of vouchers each.
