Five things to do this weekend
What does pop music, a host of ghoulish events, cultural performances and Oktoberfest have in common? They’re all part of our recommendation for you to have a terrific time in Penang, of course!
Asian Superstars Concert 2013, Oct 26
Catch famous mix of Korean and Taiwanese singers under one roof at SPICE. Already promising established headliners such as Korean pop groups, T-Ara and Boyfriend, catch other talents including Landy Wan, Alien Huang, Genie, Lara Veronin and more. It starts at 8pm and tickets are from RM109.
An Evening of Lights at the Khoo Kongsi, Oct 26
An illuminated Khoo Kongsi will mesmerise you, if not the beautiful melodies of the Chinese Classical Music. There’ll also be Chinese Cultural performances, along with stalls selling handmade knick knacks, handicrafts and Penang's street food. The lights are on from 7pm.
Halloween at Queensbay Mall, Oct 26
A list of events will keep you at the edge of your seat throughout the day. Catch Dress for Treats (10.30am onwards), Ghosts on the Dance Floor (1pm, 4pm & 7.30pm), Witch Hunt (2pm), Meet the Witches (4pm) and Halloween's Kids Costume Competition (6pm).
Oktoberfest at the Malaysian-German Society, Oct 26
Yes, it continues! This two-day party ends on Saturday night at their headquarters on Jalan Air Itam. There’ll be German bands, mandatory wurst (sausages), bar games and of course, an endless supply of brews. Purchase an Oktoberfest Souvenir Program for admission which is available right now. Party kicks off at 7pm.
Sunday’s Best, Oct 27
Although registration’s closed now due to overwhelming response, the funky charity Rock to Rock Run 2013 will be a sight to behold. Be there for the flag-off at 6.30am to see a host of participants in their ‘rockstar' outfits aiming for the shiny medals, best dressed prize and Brooks vouchers. Halloween Trick or Treat at Straits Quay is for kids below 12 years old where they dress up and collect treats from the bowls of various outlets in Straits Quay at 6pm.
