The Malaysian Halloween Festival Brings Chills and Charity to Pavilion Bukit Jalil

Thrills and chills took centre stage from the 14th to the 15th of October as the Malaysian Halloween Festival descended upon Pavilion Bukit Jalil! The event not only brought together Malaysians of all ages for two days of spooky fun, but also managed to contribute towards a worthy cause.

3KM & 8KM Halloween Fun Run

The Halloween Fun Run served as the heart of the celebration, with participants being invited to participate in a 3km Fancy Dress Run or 8km Fun Run around Pavilion Bukit Jalil. It was a colourful sight to witness hundreds of participants taking to the streets in their bright yellow and orange running kits, as well as many others who donned their most creative anime and movie costumes.

Participants who came in costume also had the opportunity to win prizes based on various categories, such as Best Malaysian Traditional Costume, Best Superhero Costume, Best Japanese Anime Character, and so on. Best of all, the Fun Run also served as a platform to raise awareness and support for individuals with autism, as part of the proceeds from the activity would be donated to autism-focused charities.

Fashion Shows By Local Designers

Fashion enthusiasts got to enjoy a dazzling series of runway shows that spotlighted the talents of many local designers. The Autism Rules fashion show featured designs by eight local autistic students from the ages of 11 to 22, with their unique artwork being printed on various items of clothing worn by both professional models and children with Downs’ Syndrome.

Meanwhile, the Malaysian Textiles competition saw local fashion designers transforming traditional prints into avant-garde creations that truly showcased the designers’ creativity and innovative thinking. Both child and adult models took the stage in equally stunning outfits that turned the heads of anyone passing by.

Handmade & Handcrafted Bazaar

Those who loved to shop would be spoiled for choice at the festival’s bazaar, a treasure trove of unique, handmade items just waiting to be discovered by visitors. With everything from handcrafted accessories to freshly prepared food and drink on display, the event served as a great platform for local small businesses to showcase their brands and products to an eager audience.

Exciting Performances By Local Acts

Local performers added to the bustling atmosphere of the Malaysian Halloween Festival as they graced the stage with their singing and dancing skills. Established artists such as Sid Murshid, Talitha Tan and Kaka Azraff were joined by upcoming acts like Jei Suzukii, Bunpais and CTZ as they performed their renditions of both local and foreign songs for an enthusiastic crowd.

In conclusion, the Malaysian Halloween Festival was a blend of entertainment and goodwill that truly served as a unique way for the local community to celebrate the spooky season. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and can’t wait to see more from the organizers!
