La Promenade Mall’s Oktoberfest launched on Sept 14 to thousands of visitors over the weekend.
Many came for the food and drinks, and even more came for the fantastic live music.
Guitarist and vocalist, Reening & Raquel, opened the show on Thursday and Friday, while At Adau and Mozaik brought the house down on Saturday and Sunday.
Judging by the massive singalongs and dancing, everyone had a great time.
The mall also played host to Kota Samarahan Council member Datuk Sim Kiang Chiok, who was the guest of honour on Saturday, representing council chairman Datuk Peter Minos.
Here are media highlights from a fantastic opening weekend:
