The lack of publicity made me nearly miss out on the event.
In my hurry I managed to take a few shots of the event. This is the back drop for the opening ceremony.
The organizer is Jabatan Hal Ehwal Agama Islam Negeri Kelantan and the manager is Institiut Pembangunan Pengurusan Johor. No local event manager can handle this? Could it be because of this that the publicity was that bad.
This picture showed the site with the white tents as the display booths.
This large globe will be the opening gimick and I think the globe will split open when the Chief Minister press the button or something.
I saw this two stalls displaying the halal products.
More report to come after I find the chance to visit the carnival or hopefully somebody will write something about it after opening ceremony tonight.
Visited the site again on 26th July 2008. It seemed the carnival had been going on since the 23rd of July 08 but many people doesn't seem to know about the event. The publicity was certainly lacking. Depending on banners alone won't be sufficient as there are banners of all kinds even of past events like the International Kite Festival which was done in May and still hanging to make it more confusing. Beside that there are other events like the launching of Digi latest package Harga Molek 25 sen seminit also in Kota Bharu on 26th July 08 at KB Mall. The launching was officially done by YM Tengku Amalin Aisyah Putri with much fanfare.
The first thing I saw at the carnival was the prize presentation being done to the winners of the ayam serama contest.
They have a very meticulous scoring system to decide the winner. Look at the was the points were scored by the judges and they were up for scrutiny after the judging were made.
To let you see what there is to see here are some pictures of the stalls at the carnial. I will add the descriptions later.

Soft ice cream made with the use of halal gelatin. The company Kasturi Klasik makes soft ice cream by the name of mingomingo and is offering business packages for prospective aspirants.
