The annual float event which was titled “Magic of the Night 2015 Floats” this year was held in May at the Marina of Putrajaya, organized by the Tourism Ministry of Malaysia. The event showcased a number of floats representing each state in Malaysia, parading on the waters of the Putrajaya lake. After the event, the Penang float was moved over here to be displayed along the Karpal Singh Drive, Jelutong.
Penang’s float is called “Endless Celebrations” and reportedly won the Most Popular and Most Creative Awards during the Magic of the Night 2015 Floats.
Note: There is an ongoing photography contest (till August 22) of the float organized by Penang Island City Council (MBPP), Photographic Society of Penang (PSP) and IJM Land Berhad. For more info on this contest, please visit: http://www.psp-penang.com.my/.
