Sabah Fest 2009 - Grab last chance at Heritage Village

Kota Kinabalu: Members of the public are invited to grab the last chance to experience the Sabah Fest 2009 (May 9-11) at Heritage Village, Sabah Museum where there will be live displays of authentic age-old rituals and diverse ethnic cultural practices.

"Except for the Labuk Kadazandusun group who have returned to Sandakan, most of the scheduled daily highlights between 10am and 5pm are on," assured Susan Shahira, Sri Pelancongan Sabah Sdn Bhd Event Manager.

"Free weekends this Saturday and Sunday (May 9-10) are probably the best opportunities to make a trip to the Heritage Village," she said.

Regardless of one's conviction and beliefs, the idea of Sabah Fest is to promote understanding and appreciation of the diverse ethnic groups of Sabah - their traditions, world view and belief systems that shaped them.
