Dragon boat fest is back with new photo event

THE Plenitude Penang International Dragon Boat Festival will be held at the Teluk Bahang Dam on June 11 and 12.

State Tourism Development and Culture Committee chairman Danny Law said Plenitude, a listed company involved in property development, was the sponsor of the event this year.

He said 12 teams from Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macau, Singapore, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Guam and the Philippines and 16 Malaysian teams from Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Kedah, Perak, Penang, the police and the navy would take part in the more than 10 categories lined up.

Law added that three junior teams from schools would also be taking part in the event.

The dragon boat races will be held from 9am to 6pm on both days.

A photography competition, which is a new side event, will be introduced this year.

“The top three winners will receive RM500, RM300 and RM100 respectively,” he said.

“Participants are required to take photos on both days. Results will be announced a week after the event,” Law said.

He said those interested in taking part in the dragon boat races could call 04-6505136, the event hotline at 016-4110000 or visit www.penangdragonboat.gov.my.

Law said a school band carnival would be held on June 12 near the dam in conjunction with the race.
