2. Halloween Town: Yokai Festival 2021


Get ready for a different flavour of Halloween festivities this October as quirky and spooky Yokais (themed characters with designs based on supernatural beings from Japanese folklore) descend upon Downtown East. You're invited to explore various locations across Downtown East and snap a few selfies with the friendly yokai roaming about. For added flair, try using the exclusive Yokai character IG face filters while you're taking pics.

Then, hop on Downtown East's social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram and TikTok) to fight alongside the yokai crew in a battle for the future of their village! A terrifying new foe has captured the Yokais' leader and heroine Kandy Onna, and it's up to you and the Yokais to hunt for the magic candy needed to restore Kandy Onna's powers and defeat the villain. New chapters to the saga will be released every week, along with contests and attractive giveaways, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled.

In addition, you can snag goodies like a pack of limited-edition Yokai face masks when you shop and dine at Downtown East during this period. If you're feeling particularly lucky, grab a scratchcard for a chance to win Downtown East, Don Don Donki and Starbucks vouchers.
