March was certainly a month to celebrate since over 15,000 partygoers in the Klang Valley went ‘green’ and revealed in St. Patrick’s Day festivities hosted by the GUINNESS. In the spirit of “March More Fun”, the 3-day citywide celebration of all things green started on Friday 15 March and during the 3-day celebration, thousands of Guinness fans raised a pint in more than 60 outlets across the city.
If you were in Changkat Bukit Bintang during that weekend, you would’ve noticed that the town was painted green. More than 5,000 people thronged the street of Changkat and enjoyed festivities such as fancily dressed Stilt Walkers, Mime Artists, Jugglers, Irish Dancers, Drumliners, Guinness Bikers, St Paddy’s Caddies and beautifully made-up black and green denizens. Serena C, resident Guinness Girl, along with Prem from Fly Fm, Jeremy Teoh from Red Fm and Daryl B were the celebrity hosts of the festivities at Changkat Bukit Bintang that night.
This year, GUINNESS took St. Patrick’s Day up a notch by giving 200 lucky GUINNESS fans from the Klang Valley the rare opportunity to be part of the nation’s biggest Guinness Pub Crawl. Apart from being chauffeured in the exclusive GUINNESS St. Patrick’s Bus to more than 20 bars across the Klang Valley, they also received a St. Patrick’s goodie bag consisting of 6 free Guinness Pints and a limited edition St. Patrick’s Pub Crawl T-Shirt.
Adding to the fun factor were renowned comedians – Kuah Jen Han and Douglas Lim whose humour got all the pub crawlers in stitches. As part of the journey, a scavenger hunt was also organised for the pub crawlers and some of them were lucky enough to go home with iPad Minis and 24 cans Guinness Pack.
