The colorful Penang Boat Float reportedly won the 1Malaysia International Tourism Night Floral Parade which was held at Putrajaya back in June 2014. After the end of the festival in Putrajaya, the boat was brought to the Karpal Singh Drive (formerly known as the Nautilus Bay or Jelutong Promenade) for display to the public every night. The boat showcases several beautifully lit places of attraction or landmarks in Penang. The boat is also designed with a dragon head and shape, to represent the annual international dragon boats festival held on the island.
A giant inflatable Ubah Bird floating on the waters off the shore of IJM Promenade at Nautilus Bay. The Ubah Bird (or “bird of change”) was launched by the Penang DAP political party and will be lighted up during the night. The Ubah Bird is a Malaysian hornbill and was used as a mascot by the Pakatan Rakyat political alliance during the 13th General Elections of Malaysia. The floating exhibit was apparently inspired by the giant yellow rubber duck of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman.
