Pesta expo to feature 165 stalls

The Star Online (Thursday November 27, 2008)

THE annual Pesta Pulau Pinang expo will feature 165 stalls which will exhibit and sell a variety of items such as electrical gadgets, food and tourism and textile products.

The expo at the Pesta grounds in Sungai Nibong will open daily from 6pm to 11.30pm from Saturday to Dec 31.

State Tourism Development, Culture, Arts and Heritage Committee chairman Danny Law said Angkasawan Datuk Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor, squash champion Datuk Nicole David and badminton ace Datuk Lee Chong Wei will make special appearances.

“There will be nightly concerts featuring local singers including Mas Idayu and Faizal Tahir at the main stage,” he told a press conference at the Pesta site yesterday.

To promote a healthy lifestyle, ping pong, badminton and sepaktakraw matches would be held, he said.

Other activities include Mini Malaysia Carnival, Menara KL Show, Reptile and Exotic Animals Display and paintball games, he said.

“Indonesia, Thailand, China and Nigeria will be taking up booths to display their goods,” he said.

Admission fees for adults have been reduced from RM4 last year to RM3 this year. Children aged between seven and 12 will be charged RM1 each.

About 500,000 people are expected to visit the 33-day event.

Law said the Penang Floral Festival, a Pesta Pulau Pinang programme, would open between 9am and 7pm daily from Nov 29 to Dec 7 at the Penang Botanic Gardens.

Themed “Floral Fantasy,” the festival is expected to draw 50,000 people. Admission is free.

“The highlights of the festival are the orchid, bonsai and adenium competitions. Government agencies and private companies in Penang can also vie for the Governor’s Challenge Trophy in the landscape design competition,” he said.

On the Penang Pesta Dragon Open Boat Race, he said it would be held on Dec 7 at the Teluk Bahang Dam instead of Queensbay’s coastal seafront as announced earlier.
