Hi Penangites! We write about Penang food and sometimes we write about events too! In case you don’t know, Bon Odori Festival 2017 is happening next month (July). This festival is a Japanese Buddhist observance that honours the spirit of ancestors, who return once a year to visit their families.
The carnival-like atmosphere is made even merrier with stalls selling a variety of local and Japanese food, fireworks display, Japanese souvenirs, lively performances and games.
