‘Let’s celebrate together’ …on the 31st

2nd June, 2009

Tajau 1KOTA KINABALU: Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah (PBRS) vice-president Cyril Yansalang yesterday proposed that the Kaamatan Festival celebrations at the state and federal level be held simultaneously on May 31 next year.

He said the move would not only raise the status of the Pesta Kaamatan as a prestigious celebration but would also reduce the cost of organising it.

Usually, the climax of the Kaamatan Festival at the state-level would be held for two days on May 30 and 31 at the Dewan KDCA each year.

Tajau 2“It will be better if the state-level celebration next year is held on May 30 and the national-level on May 31 at the same venue,” he told Bernama here.

DSC00559Welcoming the decision of the federal government through the Ministry of Information, Communications and Culture to hold the national-level Kaamatan Festival at Padang Merdeka, near here on June 7 with the cooperation of the state government, Yansalang said it reflected the commitment and seriousness of the government to place the Kaamatan Festival as a major cultural festival in the country.
