Genting International Children’s Festival Fun for all in the family this school holiday

Over two hundred special children from Kuala Lumpur and Klang were invited to attend the launch of Genting International Children’s Festival today.  The children between 3 and 15 years old from homes namely AnbeSivam, Rainbow, Good Samaritan, Rumah Victory, Agathians Shelter and Persatuan Kanak-kanak istimewa Hulu Langat woke up early to come to the resort as a string of program awaits them.

Gracing the event was YB Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun, Deputy Minister of Women, Children & Community Development.  With her was Mr Paul Baker, Deputy Chief Operating Officer of Genting Malaysia Berhad.

In her speech, YB Datin Paduka Chew said, ‘Children are our greatest gift and assets. They are the future of this country and upon which, the endless possibilities of our nations hope and dream are placed upon. Thus, it is our utmost priorities that they are cared for and protected. We need to place special emphasis on the healthy development of the child's physical, social, emotional and mental health. We need to equip them with the appropriate values and attitudes so that they have direction and purpose as the generation and leaders of the future.’

Mr Paul Baker couldn’t agree more. He said, ‘Family is at the heart of everything we do at Resorts World Genting—and children are the focal point of many of our themes.

In our role as entertainment hub, we take pride in inspiring dreams, in encouraging bonding and harmony among families, and in using art and culture to promote growth and sustenance among the young. That is because healthy and happy children are a relevant feature of every thriving community.’

The festival, to be held till June 14, promises a whole range of activities that are sure to keep the young ones happy, from stage performances to movie screenings, to magic workshops.

The launch also saw six young bloggers being pinned as Resorts World Genting Young Bloggers and Ambassadors.  The six participated in the Resort’s call for young bloggers ages between 8 and 15.  As RWG Young Bloggers and Ambassadors, they get exclusive invitations to review the many events at the Resort.  This includes stay, food and beverage plus shows, theme park events and activities.

The event continued with shows that include dinosaurs, clowns, jugglers and stilt dancers amongst the colourful characters that add merriment to the occasion.  

The guests were later taken to the Land of Art where the little ones can decorate their own ice-cream booth, and at the Creativity & Dream Discovery Zone, they get to paint the castle and town, and participate in board games.   Next stop the group adjourned to the Dinosaur Land at Rainforest, First World Hotel Lobby where more magical hours unfold. The VIPs and children were greeted by five “dinosaurs”, and were entertained by the BatteryHeads Percussion group.

Next stop the group adjourned to the Fox Movie Screening at Horizon 50, First World Convention Centre where kids and parents alike get to enjoy movies such as Rio, Nico & Pedro, and Blue & Jewel daily from noon to 8 pm.  Like the title suggests, kids can meet and greet their favorite Fox character here too.

If that’s not enough, the VIPs were taken for a cool magical experience in the -6 degrees SnowWorld.  The highlight of SnowWorld was a display of 50 mannequin penguins and also where arts and craft such as Penguin Egg Craft Making session and “Help The Penguin Catch More Fishes” were all taking place at the Snow World from 2pm to 5pm.
