He said without the support of all, including the media and the public, it is difficult to maintain the harmony that is felt now.

He hoped the programme would also be a catalyst and create an active, peaceful and prosperous community.

Several routes, namely Jalan Elopura, Jalan Coastal and Jalan Pryer, will be closed from midnight to noon on Saturday to make way for the celebrations.
