April dates for Kalimaran Fest

TENOM: The Kalimaran Festival, a traditional Murut celebration that was scheduled on 28 and 29 March this year has been postponed to 4 and 5 April.

Chairman of the Sabah Cultural Board Datuk Wilfred Madius Tangau said the delay was due to reasons that could not be avoided.

Nevertheless, he assured all the programmes that had been planned earlier remained unchanged with more interesting highlights to be included.

The Kalimaran Festival that will be officiated by Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman will feature among others, a colourful display of the cultures and traditions of eight Murut sub-groups in Sabah.
