It was all fun and games—and cake—at Parker Place’s 18th Anniversary Celebration Show last Saturday afternoon where more than 100 people came out to help them celebrate the occasion.

The show was hosted by AM1470 on the main stage in the mall. There were singers, dancers and games where a lucky few won prizes.

“The audience was quite enthusiastic,” said Melissa Chalermsrichai, Parker Place promotion co-ordinator.

Audience members of all ages had the opportunity to get up on stage and participate in games.

The first one had contestants go out into the crowd and collect items such as business cards and belts from audience members. The last game was a Mandarin/Cantonese round of Name That Tune.

The celebration was “an opportunity to just share with the community and to provide some entertainment,” said Chalermsrichai.

The food court, where the show was held, was the perfect size even if it did get a little crowded because “the environment is just cozier,” she said.

The show was done in Mandarin and Cantonese this year, but they plan to make it more multicultural for next year, according to Chalermsrichai.

“We do try to attract more multicultural customers as well,” she said.
