A variety of fun and exciting activities have been lined up for the daylong Muara Beach Festival 2008 to be held at the Muara Beach on July 27.
The 'Pesta Pantai Strongest Men 2008' will allow the public to demonstrate their strength, while other activities include a bread-eating competition, teh-tarik contest, handball match, beach volleyball, Bicycle Beach Speeding and a tug-of-war.
The beach festival will open with mass aerobics and a 6.30 am big walk that commences and concludes at Muara Beach.
The event is organised by the Mukim Serasa Village Consultative Council in conjunction with the monarch's 62nd birthday celebrations.
The organising committee has announced that attractive prizes are up for grabs.
Every year the event attracts large crowds of people from near and far.
The highlight of the event will be the karaoke competition, in search of the 'Bintang Hari Keputeraan.'
The competition is divided into three categories 'Men and Ladies Open,' '18- to 40-year-olds,' and 'Veterans' (for those over 40).
Members of the public are encouraged to take part in the many activities that promise to be fun for everyone.
The Pesta Pantai Muara - which aims to further enliven the festive atmosphere - is one of the popular events organised by residents of Mukim Serasa as an annual activity in conjunction with His Majesty's birthday celebrations.
