Kudat Coconut fest on September 7 to 9

By Anna Vivienne

KUDAT, located on the northern tip of Borneo will be celebrating the coconut on Sept 7 to 9 Sept this year.

The festival, organised by the District Office in collaboration with Sabah Tourism Board is an annual event to celebrate the coconut industry in that region. This year, the event will be held for three days; Sept 7 to 9.

If last year’s event is to go by, the celebration will start with an exhibition of farm produce by the agricultural ommunity.

There will be various types of food offered to celebrants while handicrafts stalls will do a roaring trade.

Crowds will throng into the Township to participate and witness the various activities lined up for the event.

I believe that there will be various other activities such as the coconut fashion contest where a bevy of beauties sporting attires made from coconut fronds, leaves, fruits and husks vied for the title of “Miss Coconut Fest’.

I believe that there will also be a Dragon Boat race.

Be that as it may, the Coconut Fest in Kudat is a must see event. So if you are any where around the vicinity at this time, drop by with your guests and get ‘wowed’ with the splendour of this festival.
