Sungei Wang celebrates our 40th anniversary and Mid-Autumn Festival with a blast from the past showcasing the glamour of the 1970s era from now till 4 October 2017.
In early 1970s, BB Park was the entertainment hub with singing stage, fun fair and theatre, it is the place for fun games and glamour shows. This Mid-Autumn, Sungei Wang reminisces the BB Park glamour era by transforming the mall back to 1970s. Walking through the Sungei Wang Walk, shoppers can soak into the festive mood with glittering lightbulbs and lanterns. A giant gramophone sits facing Jalan Sultan Ismail together with the signature Sungei Wang Lantern Fun Park arch to greet the shoppers. As you step into the Centre Court, a two-level theatre backed with a gigantic ferris wheel set as main stage where the launch, performances and activities are to take place.
 “We wanted to showcase the glitz and glamour as well as reminisce the glorious BB Park, which was the identity of this area before Sungei Wang was built. The story of this place and era will be told via the Sungei Wang Lantern Fun Park Mid-Autumn Musical happening on the 16, 17, 22 and 23 September 2017. A series of interactive decorations such as the retro stage, rickshaw, 70s street setting with seating can be found around the Centre Court for shoppers to take photos. Last but not least, we will end our celebration with the grand Sungei Wang Lantern Parade on the 30 September 2017 together with foreign artist, 988 DJs and a hundred lion dance troupes circulating Bukit Bintang area,” says Ms. Yuen May Chee, Complex Manager of Sungei Wang during the Light Up Ceremony of Sungei Wang Lantern Fun Park on the 15 September 2017.

Together with members of the media and invited guests, a simple yet fun light up ceremony was held at the Centre Court to officiate the celebrations as well as unveil the charity box for donation drive. The launch was not hyped with a roaring lion dance performance but the highlight of the Sungei Wang Lantern Fun Park Mid-Autumn Musical was also performed to entice the crowd on the upcoming musical. Fans were also entertained by stage appearance of popular band Mad August and local celebrity, Ruby Yap
