Penang Bon Ondori Carnival – Esplanade

Bon Ondori Carnival was held at the Esplanade on 21st July 2007. This year was our first visit to this event. There were many stalls set up by the perimeter of the field – game stalls and also others, mostly selling food and souvenirs. There was a huge crowd.

My hubby went around the food stalls and bought some fried baby crabs (RM5.00) and finds them very crispy. I end up buying a packet of Japanese cake that cost RM10.00.

In the middle of the field is a huge stage where all the performances were held. The carnival started with the Japanese drum performances and follow by their cultural dances.

Many Japanese ladies and children were dressed in their traditional costume. This lady look so elegant and beautiful and so are the children.

We were impressed by the overall cleaniness of the venue. Bravo to the organizer. Its a shame we could not stay on to watch the firework display as it started to drizzle. Hopefully we will be able to attend this event next year…..
