MALACCA: Hundreds of people gathered at the famous Jonker Walk here to join in the Jonker Walk Carnival held in conjunction with the launch of the December Mega Sale Carnival 2003 on Saturday night. 

Jonker Walk, which is always busy during the weekends when the street is converted into a night market, was even more crowded that night as people came to join in the fun which lasted three hours. 

Prior to the launch of the carnival organised by the Jonker Walk Chinese New Year Carnival Committee, there was a fireworks display. 

The booms could be heard all over Malacca town. 

The spectators were also captivated by a husband and wife team from Sri Lanka who performed “fire-eating” stunts and a “candle-light” dance. 

There were also a talent show, acrobatic stunts and a qi gong demonstration.  

Clowns walked along the street to the delight of children.  

There was also a short messaging service contest where participants answered questions using their cell phones. 

Winners took home prizes such as digital cameras and RM10 savings premiums from Bank Simpanan Nasional. 

Among those present were Deputy Culture, Arts and Tourism Minister Datuk Fu Ah Kiow, Pempena Sdn Bhd chief operating officer Mohd Rosly Selamat and Jonker Walk Chinese New Year Carnival Committee chairman Datuk Wira Gan Boon Leong.
