SINGAPORE, 25 April 2023 – Singapore Sports Hub is bringing back the kampung spirit with Celebrate Hari Raya @ Stadium Roar, its inaugural three-day festival, taking place from 29 April to 1 May 2023. Expect to be dazzled by an array of Malay cultural experiences, festivities and, of course, gastronomy.
Good ol’ kampung life
Visitors to Celebrate Hari Raya @ Stadium Roar will have the opportunity to try their hand at traditional games like bola tin, giant five stones, spinning tops, a life-sized eraser challenge and even a sepak takraw pong challenge. Those seeking something a little less competitive can look forward to crafts like tile painting, ketupat plushie making, stained glass art or even take part in creating a community mural using playnting, the technique of using drumsticks dipped in paint to create rhythmic paint patterns across a canvas. Participation is free, and more information can be found here.
