Raya Harmoni, Hari Raya light-up

Mark the date. It's on 6 Aug when Geylang Road will be lit up to celebrate Hari Raya. There will be performances by Andrew Andhika & Chelsea Olivia. A lot of photo opps for sure.

GEYLANG Road will be alight with colourful lights and decorations to celebrate Hari Raya next month.

Majlis Pusat, which was chosen by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) to organise the annual light-ups for the past 13 years, expects crowd turnout at the 49-day event to hit two million.

This includes the turnout of 20,000 expected during the launch of the light-up on August 6, which will feature performances by artistes such as Andrew Andhika and Chelsea Olivia from popular soap opera Tasbih Cinta dan Melati Untuk Marvel.

This year theme is on Raya Harmoni, to coincide with international racial harmony day, which falls close to it.

The light-up cost $300,000 to put up: Half of it was funded by organisations like the Singapore Tourism Board and StarHub, while the remaining was forked out by Majlis Pusat through fund-raising activities.

From Straits Times, "Hari Raya light-up on Aug 6".
