From 20 May, the 2.25km stretch of Geylang Serai from Sims Avenue to Changi Road will be filled with lights and festivities to appeal to Muslims and non-Muslims, ahead of Hari Raya Puasa on 25 June. Themed “Deepening the kampung spirit”, this year’s light-up is inspired by the intricate motifs on the songket as well as the kampung spirit. On this night, visitors will get to admire the street decorations and look forward to a wide array of activities, which include a performance by Ramli Sarip, Singapore’s very own “Papa Rock” as well as kompang (drum) and tarian (dance) performances.

For those who may be curious to learn more about the Malay culture and heritage, and the history of Hari Raya, they can pay a visit to the Malay museum and Pavilion, an art installation inspired by the weaves of a ketupat, located at Kampong Ubi Community Centre. Visitors can also expect to take Instagram-worthy shots with the 3-metre tall wau (Kelantanese kite) as a backdrop.
