Kuching Festival 2010 a great success

KUCHING: A total of 650,000 people patronised Kuching Festival 2010 during the three-week celebration, said Kuching South City Council (MBKS) mayor James Chan.

He proudly told reporters on Sunday night that the event was successful and that hawkers had made good income during the festival from the massive number of visitors.

Chan said that to ensure the success would be repeated in the future he hoped to get feedback on how to make the festival more unique than what it has been over the years.

“This year, we have more space for the vendors and from feedback they are very happy and I am happy as my staff and councillors had done very well for this festival,” said Chan.

He added that the festival had attracted people from all walks of life and was happy to note that the council had done its best to ensure a trouble-free environment for the festival goers, in line with Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud’s vision for Kuching to be a liveable city. He was also glad that the festival attracted more foreign tourists this year and expressed hope that more ethnic foods, especially Dayak food, would be on sale in the coming years.
