LABpark

Over 50,000 people had swung by LABpark, an experimental container park of lights, art and music in Bandar Baru Sri Klebang , after dark – rain or shine!

Powered by Kinta Properties, it was held during the weekends from December 15 till January 7 with free admission. The festive curation featured glowing orbs, multi-hued umbrella domes, sparkling festive trees and shipping containers converted into colourful light laboratories.

The crowd favourites were an immersive kaleidoscopic mirror tunnel (Limitless LAB) and a vibrant dot-filled masterpiece (Smiles LAB) among others. The evenings also saw an open stage of live music (Live LAB) and delectable fare from Din’s Food LAB. Plenty of photo opportunities with #nofilter needed, there was a best picture competition with RM1000 AEON vouchers up for grabs.

“We tried to do something different again this year as part of the community programme within Kinta Properties. Also running on the eco theme, it’s all about learning something new and different experiences as you explore the different containers. Something different for Ipoh,” explained Dato’ Lim Si Boon, the chairman of Kinta Properties and Bonanza Venture Holdings Sdn Bhd said during the launch on Friday, December 15.

The park is now closed for a glittering makeover and will reopen with new installations and market place during Chinese New Year. Check out the Kinta Properties Facebook page or call 05 292 1333 for updates!

It was the second year in a row for Kinta Properties to host a light display in its master planned township, the first being the iconic Field of Lights which was held to celebrate Bandar Baru Sri Klebang’s 15th anniversary in December 2016. The event attracted more than 30,000 people to see the Instagram-worthy field blanketed with hundreds of illuminated shapes culminating into a beaming Fu – the Chinese character for luck and prosperity.
