In short

Initially, these neighbourhood fairs started off as religious festivals celebrating a patron saint or the anniversary of the consecration of the local church. Over time, they turned into funfairs with bumper cars, carousels, food stands and games booths for visitors of all ages. They are a proud part of the nation's traditions and cultural heritage.

What's more, they provide a fun and welcoming setting for people to get together and socialise. The local fairs are an opportunity for people of all ages, long-time residents and new arrivals to meet, talk and interact with one another.

To keep this piece of local heritage alive, the City would like to support and revitalise these local fairs by teaming up with local associations and clubs, as unfortunately only Sunday fairs are now held in certain districts. However, once a year, some neighbourhood squares turn into mini carnivals, complete with bright lights, the smell of cotton candy and fried foods, and the sound of children squealing with joy from the various rides.
