MIRI: The 1Malaysia Miri Street Party (1MSP) on Sept 15 will coincide with the countdown for Malaysia Day.
The second 1MSP is co-organised by the Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) Miri Youth section and Resident Committee.
“In conjunction with the nationwide celebration of Malaysia Day, this event promises an exciting programme of fun and celebration with evening street concert and countdown on North Yu Seng Road,” said organising chairman Keith Chin at a press conference yesterday.
“More than 5,000 people including Bruneians are expected to flock to the venue of the event along the Miri Tourism Corridor at North Yu Seng Road.”
He advised motorists to avoid the stretch of North Yu Seng Road coming from South Yu Seng Road, as the former would be partially closed from 6pm on Sept 14 and then fully closed from 6pm on Sept 15.
Events leading up to the countdown to Malaysia Day will start at 8pm and end at 1.30am.
There will be performances by three local bands, four street dance groups, street magic show, three recording artistes from Kuala Lumpur apart from a guest deejay from Kuala Lumpur. Revellers can also enjoy local and western food by Ming Cafe, Serai Wangi, Hot Chilly Pepper and Barcelona.
