AmCham Christmas Family Fun Carnival Party Succeeded

On December 15th, 2018, AmCham Southwest successfully held the 2018 Christmas Family Fun Carnival Party– Through the Jungle at the Ritz-Carlton Chengdu. With Christmas nearing up, we invited high-level managements, government officials, officers of consulates and foreign representative offices along with their family and children to attend this event to have the most unforgettable Christmas memory. The color theme of the Party was the classical red, green and white. Adults were all dressed up and the kids were wearing adorable animal costumes. AmCham especially set up two Children’s Corners for families to have fun together. All guests received a tea-leaves stuffed panda toy as a gift. The atmosphere was delightful and light-hearted. While the guests were engaged in networking, their kids also enjoyed themselves.

The 2018 Christmas Family Fun Party was a perfect event for the whole family. The Ritz-Carlton Chengdu presented a hearty buffet dinner including Christmas roast turkey and goose, Feuerzangenbowle, and all sorts of gourmet food. The chef also prepared a beautiful log cake for the guests to share. In addition, American beer and Belgium ice cream provided by our generous sponsors were also quite popular among the guests. The Party was kicked off with holiday greetings from AmCham Chairman Benjamin Wang, Consul General of the U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu Jim Mullinax and Acting General Manager of the Ritz-Carlton Chengdu Marcel Damen. The event took place in Flair on the 27th floor, a modern and unique open-air restaurant with an amazing view. Guests enjoyed a series of brilliant performances, not only limited to traditional Christmas ones such as melodious carols and cheerful dances, but also refreshing shows like cocktail mixing show, interactive street dance and live sand-painting performance.

Highlight of the Party was definitely the magic show and clown performance. Both kids and adults were fascinated by the talented magician and watched closely when he was doing his tricks. The clown showed up next and turned the Party into a real carnival for the kids. Christmas Party is not complete without some delightful live music. A touching piano and violin duet brought the heart-warming vibe to the guests.

In the Children’s Corners next to Flair, parents and kids participated in different fun games, including mini pool, mini golf and Table Engineer, as well as some hands-on activities such as gingerbread man DIY and Christmas card DIY, and enjoyed some quality time together. Kids who finished all the activities received prizes such as adventure park vouchers, stuffed toys and airplane models,etc. In the main venue, Santa Claus, Reindeer and even T-Rex showed up and brought joy to everyone.

At the end of Party, the Best Dressed Contest was on. Accompanied by the cheer of guests, cute kids dressed in animal costumes competed with each other on the stage. The next round was Secret Santa which let everyone felt the Christmas spirit. There were over 100 gifts being exchanged by the guests. There was also a raffle round, and the lucky winners received prizes such as Chengdu- U.S. round-trip flight tickets, horse riding experience vouchers, custom-made silk scarves, Broadway children’s play tickets, health management packages, fun toy sets, children dental care vouchers and children electronic toothbrushes.

With Christmas around the corner, all the guests were happy to have old friends and new acquaintances along their side. The laughter of kids and smile of adults were all that matters for this event! At the same time, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the 19 sponsors of the Party. Thanks to their support in the amazing stage performances, fun games in Children’s Corners and abundant prizes during the raffle round. Looking forward to seeing you next time!
