With the second edition, we want friends and families to carry on the time-held tradition and holiday spirit across the festive season and the coming months.”
He continues: “Across generations, carnivals have always held a special place in our hearts and we are excited to present the second edition of this large-scale event to all. The Carnival is much more than just a place for fun and games. We hope for the event to be a recurring iconic tradition for friends and families to build lifelong memories together.”
