The Guinness St Patrick’s Day Festival celebration at Changkat Bukit Bintang in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday 17th March 2011 brought the row of street alive with big bikes, street entertainers, roving buskers, costume players, Irish dance troupe, drum line performers and beautiful Guinness ambassadors who served pint after pint of the favourite black beer.

A turnout of over 3,000 excited party-goers and revellers, locals, expatriates and tourists packed the street donning quirky accessories like St. Patrick’s hats in green and black, green wigs and green glasses in celebration of the Irish festival which was held for the first time in this street well known for its buzzing joints and vibrant nightspots.

The festival began at 7.30 pm with a grand parade of all the performers led by riders riding their big bikes and make their way into Changkat Bukit Bintang. They were cheered by the enthusiastic crowd who has lined the street that was decorated with the traditional St. Patrick's Day decor of shamrocks and shades of green and feted in green balloons to brighten up the celebratory mood.

It was a fantastic night of celebration with the whole street coming alive with the crowd having a great time enjoying the foods and drinks and dancing with the sound of Irish music blasting from loud speakers.
