Pesta Sungai Melaka (Malacca River Festival)


The start of the school hoidays was also the start of the Pesta Sungai Melaka. The photographs posted here were events organised for the closing ceremony. There were fire-works, decorative boats competition, stage shows, and lucky draws.  The different communities of Malacca (the  Chinese, the Indians, the Chittys, the Portuguese and the Malays) had representatives dressed in their traditional customes to welcome the dignitaries. It was a noisy affair that went far into the night.

Hope you like the snapshots.
