A Carnival Over the Rainbow
It was a sea of colours at the Metta Charity Carnival as walkers, stallholders and volunteers donned their brightly coloured t-shirts. Amidst a bustling crowd of families young and old were colourful cartoon mascots that brought to life the Carnival’s Cartoon Wonderland theme, all congregating at Metta Building on 18 March 2018 to share Metta’s vision in helping the community.
Gracing the event as Guest-of-Honour was Ms Jessica Tan, MP for East Coast GRC and Advisor to East Coast GRC GROs as she flagged off the morning 3-km Charity Walk around the Simei estate that preceded the Carnival. First Vice-President of Metta Welfare Association, Venerable Shi You Guang delivered an opening speech and together with Ms Jessica Tan, struck the giant gong to symbolise the official start of the Metta Charity Carnival 2018.
Drawing long queues of crowds were mouth-watering vegetarian delights from laksa to multi-hued ang ku kuehs. Children were in their their own cool wonderland as they played in air-conditioned comfort with life-sized giant game sets such as a Snakes and Ladders, Pick Up Sticks, Jenga and an inflatable Dragon’s Castle by Society Staples.
