VISITORS to the 20th Bon Odori Festival tomorrow will standa chance to win 17 attractive prizes in a lucky draw.
All you need to do is spend RM20 on the food coupons to get your hands on the prizes which include a two-way air ticket to Japan, a two-way air ticket to Phuket for two, Sushi King vouchers worth RM200 each and many more.
State Tourism Development Committee chairman Danny Law Heng Kiang said visitors have to fill up their particulars on the tickets and drop them at the Malaysian Japanese Society (MJS), Association for Overseas Technical Scholarship (AOTS) or other booths at the event.
“There will be 52 booths featuring an array of Japanese and local food, souvenirs, Yukata, T-shirts, bags as well as games stalls,” he said during a press conference at Komtar on Wednesday.
To be held at the Esplanade in George Town, from 6pm to 11pm, the festival will feature a myriad of performances.
