The annual Kuching Festival Fair at the Dewan Masyarakat (community hall) near the MBKS building was officially open yesterday night with the compound of the festival attracting a large crowd.

The huge crowd was testament of the popularity of the fair, regardless of whether other fairs such as the Pasar Ramadhan was also offering similar concepts.

For this year, the theme of the fair is “Kuching – My City My Future”. The fair will open for 24 nights until August 4 in which 220 stalls selling food and drink are available, with another 200 booths are at the trade fair.

Nonetheless, unlike Pasar ramadhan, the Kuching Festival Fair offers entertainment, cultural and sports activities as it goes on until late night.
