THE Pesta Chingay, Lion and Dragon Dance Parade will take place from 7.30pm to 10pm on Sunday.
The parade will start at Padang Brown in Jalan Datuk Keramat and end at Padang Kota Lama, where the Chingay, dragon and lion dance teams will commence with the show.
Along the way, the parade will pass Jalan Penang, Jalan Burmah, Jalan Transfer, Jalan Sri Bahari, Lebuh Chulia, Jalan Mesjid Kapitan Kling and Lebuh Light.
Tourism Development and Culture state exco Danny Law Heng Kiang said two dragon dance teams, six lion dance teams and 10 Chingay teams would be moving without stopping along the route to avoid contributing to traffic congestion.
“There will be no stops for performances along the way as it is now the school holidays and we want to avoid traffic congestion as much as possible.
“The real action will be at the Esplanade, where the teams of performers will thrill spectators with their dazzling balancing, dancing and acrobatic skills,” he said.
Two school bands will accompany the parade, while beauty queens riding along in four gaily decorated trishaws will add a dash of glamour.
The annual display of amazing prowess and agility, organised by the state Tourism Development office, is one of the highlights on the Penang calendar of events. For details, call the hotline 016-411 0000.
