The 35th National Chinese Cultural Festival Procession ~ Part 5

Many thanks to Mr Bertrand Linet for his excellent photographs which I shall be using in this series of blogs here. As I was not well and not able to walk long distances, I asked for his kind flavour to shoot some photographs for me to blog. he kindly did this. A big thank you to him, my dear good friend.

This is the Procession of the 35th National Chinese Cultural Festival which was held on Sunday, 23 September, 2018 starting at 7.00 pm. Weather was not that good as it was drizzling a bit during the night.

Enjoy the great photographs of Mr Bertrand Linet.

Penang Wesak Day 2018 ~ 50 Final   Leave a comment


Wesak Day is observed by devotees to celebrate Buddha’s birthday, enlightenment and achievement of Nirvana. From very early in the morning, devotees flock to temples to meditate as well as participate in candle-lit processions. As a sign of benevolence, doves are set free and other charitable acts are also performed by devotees such as providing free vegetarian meals. The pinnacle of the celebration is in the evening where there is a procession of floats decked with colourful flowers and bright lights accompanied by children singing and monks chanting prayers while sprinkling holy water throughout the journey.
