GEORGE TOWN, July 14 (Bernama) -- Amidst the darkness, the Esplanade here was lit with vibrant and colourful light shows in every corner of the field last night, welcoming the 10th edition of the George Town Festival (GTF) this year.
The 16-day programme kicked off with the 'When Night Falls', a two-day event which brings together an eclectic array of illuminated artworks from worldwide.
Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said that GTF 2019 was far different from the past GTF organised as it was usually held indoors.
GTF 2019 is organised by TLM Events Sdn Bhd, and has also been appointed to organised the event for 2020.
“We hope that these vibrant performances combining cutting-edge technology with sensational acrobatic feats will keep the visitors entertained, enthralled and amused,” Chow said when launching the festival.
Penang Exco for Tourism, Arts, Culture and Heritage (PETACH) Yeoh Soon Hin said that GTF 2019’s theme 'A Festival for Everyone' was aimed at getting all Penangites on board.
