Christmas Fun with Balloons! Everyone’s Bouncing with Joy at 1 Mont Kiara

It’s a Bounciful Christmas this December at 1 Mont Kiara! From now till 31st December, a Christmas Balloon Maze will dominate the Main Atrium of the mall on the Ground Floor. The myriad of colourful balloons have been a hit with young families, especially children, who cannot resist hiding in crates made out of balloons and running around giddily as they play tag with friends.

The concept for this year was born out of whimsy for the love of the whimsical, which is why shoppers to the mall will also find clowns juggling and walking on stilts on certain times of the day when they visit, in addition to the usual Christmas carolers delighting them with unforgettable yuletide standards and, of course, ol’ Saint Nick himself and his troupe of dancing elves.

Already in its third inception, the Shuddup N’ Dance competition has been gaining traction among young aspiring dancers since its debut at Klang Parade in 2014. This year, the competition kicked off first at Ipoh Parade in March before travelling down to 1 Mont Kiara in May, then Klang Parade for the Grand Finals in August. Successful teams from each respective malls will then compete against each other at the Grand Finals in Klang Parade.

To those who enjoy crafts, there will be workshops on how to make and decorate Christmas ornaments on all the weekends in December, but if you’d rather shop for festive decorations instead, a Christmas bazaar is set-up around the Christmas Balloon Maze to satiate your year-end shopping spree. Incidentally, shoppers who have spent RM350 at any of 1 Mont Kiara’s outlets (RM450 for purchases from Village Grocer) are eligible to redeem one free entry ticket, valued at RM30 each, to the Christmas Balloon Maze.

As Christmas is a time of giving, 1 Mont Kiara will be inviting residents of Agathians Shelter for a fun day at the mall on 10th December. The children’s home is the recipient of a RM10,000 donation by the Tan Sri Tan Foundation as part of the mall’s CSR initiative. The weekend of the 10th is a special one as the mall will be hosting its monthly signature “Playtime!” event to coincide with Christmas, and there will be a Sculpture Colouring Contest, Children Electric Car Rides, Cupcake Decorating Workshops, and a Children Christmas Dance Along Session.
