1st Avenue Mall Raya Performances

This year, the second day of Hari Raya coincides with Malaysia's Independence Day, or better known as Hari Merdeka. Hence the term this year "Merdeka Raya" to refer the joint celebration. Selamat Hari Raya to all those celebrating, and happy holidays to the rest. So it happened I was with my family shopping on Merdeka Day over in 1st Avenue Mall, when I saw this Raya performances at its centre court on the ground floor.

1st Avenue Mall has grown in its popularity as well as the number of stalls opened since my last visit last year,with it's current status as the mall to be in central Penang. When I was there on Merdeka day, most shops were open with full occupancy, and the crowd was huge.

It was therefore a pleasant surprise to see some dancers performing at it's centre court stage to the tune of Hari Raya songs. The music was pleasant, and it certainly got all the shoppers in the raya mood. Check out some of the photos I managed to capture that afternoon.

With these perfomances, lots of shops, a Carrefour and one TGV cinema in 1st Avenue Mall, I expect this mall to become one of the really happening spots in Penang besides Gurney Plaza and Queensbay Mall. That being said, how was Raya for you? Merdeka Raya to be exact.

No famous guest stars? Ah...at least the place looks a bit busier and more alive now. When I was there last, it had just opened and most shoplots were not occupied and there were not very many people around.
