SOME 650 people had a ball of a time taking part in healthy activities at the World Health Day 2015 celebration in Balik Pulau, Penang.
Many signed up for the 9km bicycle ride and events held to mark the day.
A festive atmosphere prevailed at Kampung Perlis where tents and booths housing games and displays were set up to create health awareness.
Various fun-filled contests like colouring, healthy cooking, guess-the-fruit games and health- related quizzes were popular with visitors.
The state Health Department’s booth offering free health screenings and displays also had its fair share of visitors.
When the free buffet lunch was served, the public not only enjoyed good local fare but also learnt about good amount of calories to consume as well.
The recent event started at 7.30am and was opened by Deputy Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Hilmi Yahya.
It ended after lunch.
