|Brochure detailing all the events happening in George Town|
from 6-8th July
It was fantastic and i truly enjoyed myself especially the Street Performances, Temple open houses and even food streets. The street performances started from 6.45-11.00pm were organised to 4 zones. There were at
Zone 1: junction of Lebuh Acheh and Lorong Lumut
Zone 2: junction of Lebuh Armenia and Lorong Soo Hong
Zone 3: junction of Kampong Kolam and Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling
Zone 4: Khoo Kongsi , Cannon Square.
It was food galore as well as many street vendors were out an about. I truly enjoyed the Nasi Kandar Festival and also the samplings of authentic Teochew food at the Han Jiang Ancestral Temple at Lebuh Chulia by the Penang Teochew Association. The nightline of the usually quite George Town area became alive with heritage at corner giving it an air of mystic and wonder.
Another observation i made especially from the Street Performances and the organising team involved in giving out brochures, giving directions and selling merchandise, is that many are youths, getting involved in preserving and conserving their proud heritage. Many of the youths in Penang are seen helping out in the night events either as performers or in the organising team which gave me that impression.
Below are some of the pictures i took while enjoying myself around George Town.
