Penang Street Festival

Food, arts and lots of fun ... that's the Penang Georgetown Festival in a nutshell. The usually quiet and sleepy streets came alive in the evening on a Saturday night with street performers, stalls hosting free games for children and a handicraft market hosted in a heritage temple.

First time stilt walkers attempting to balance themselves. These looked so much fun and if the line weren't so long, I'd have happily given this a try.

Hubs and Bubs watching percussionists. The streets were jam packed with people and thankfully the rains cleared the haze away.

Cat themed street art which is a part of the 101 Lost Kittens at Georgetown Festival to highlight the plight of strays.

There was a handmade market held in the grounds of the Hock Teik Cheng Sin Temple that started from evening until night.

We spotted this artist painting animals from the Chinese zodiac using what we thought were flat pieces of blades. He made it look so easy and deftly painted the animals out with a few colourful strokes.
