Malaysia Flora Fest

Malaysia's Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor announced that a two-week floral festival starting from 20 January 2007 as one of the events being planned for the Visit Malaysia 2007. The Malaysia Flora Fest is inspired by the annual Pasadena Tornament of Roses in the United State.

A grand floral parade themed Colors of Harmony will be held at Putrajaya on 27 January 2007. Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan hope it will become an annual affair, and an international one. Malaysia had inspiring successes at the Pasadean floral parade. Malaysia's entry in 1991 was judged the most beautiful one. It had also won other prestigious awards at the annual floral parade.

Included in the two-week flora festival will be a "florathon" (a 2km walking race), a photography exhibition, a flora bazaar. There will be a Malaysia Flora Fest photography competition, and entry forms for the competition will be available form Tourism Malaysia offices worldwide and from Fujifilm Digital Imaging outlets. The closing date for the competition is 20 December 2006.
