The annual month-long shopping fiesta is back to delight local and international visitors at the Hari Raya bazaar at Geylang Serai.
With over 1,000 stalls, the ever-popular bazaar features a wide array of food, snacks and traditional Malay costumes and accessories. There are also free weekend performances and movie screenings.
Spanning the areas around Geylang Serai market, Joo Chiat Complex and along Haig Road, the lively bazaar offers interesting snacks such as candyfloss burritos, poke bowls and rainbow planet ice-cream buns. Patrons who are preparing for Hari Raya Puasa can also find a wide variety of traditional costumes and decorations there from now until 24 June 2017.
Geylang Serai is also hosting a visual extravaganza comprising over 900,000 LED light bulbs as part of the Hari Raya Light Up 2017. “Every Hari Raya Puasa, Geylang Serai is illuminated with brilliant light displays. While being a platform for commemorating Ramadan, the annual Hari Raya Light Up also provides an opportunity for local and international visitors alike to explore the precinct and understand more about the Malay culture in Singapore,” Dr Teo Cheng Swee, chairman of Hari Raya Light Up 2017 organising committee said.
