George Town Penang Festival 2013

2013 marks the 5th Anniversary of George Town as a World Heritage site and this year's theme was Colour, Culture, Tradition. The heritage celebrations is an annual affair and has been gaining traction from people near and far.

This is the second time i came down to Penang on the 6 and 7th July  to enjoy the festivities. See my previous post last year July. There are many activities this year as well with some guided walks requiring prior registration. I am not able to attend all but i did manage to catch performances such as the:

  • Teochew Rod Puppet Show
  • Taiwanese Glove Puppet (Po-Te-Hi)
  • Wayang Gedek 
  • Peranakan Hokkien Rhymes
  • Menora Siam Malaysia
  • Hong Teik Lion Dance Troupe
  • Meng Eng Soo Open Day
  • Indian Muslim Music & Nasi Kandar FoodFestival
  • Teochew Food at Penang Teochew Association
Below are some the pictures i took at the various events and festivities.

Howdy! This post could not be written any better! Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept preaching about this. I'll forward this information to him. Fairly certain he's going to have a great read. I appreciate you for sharing! SBOBET
