Kaamatan activities at Lintasan Deasoka
Date Posted: 18 May 2009

The Rungus-inspired traditional longhouse (pic) set up at the Lintasan Deasoka here, in conjunction with the city-level Kaamatan celebration on May 14-16, will be hosting a wide range of activities.
Among the activities are cultural performances such as song and dance, sale of handicrafts (beginning May 14 until Aug 31) and a traditional food competition (May 14).
The setting up of the longhouse (pic) aimed to bring the "kampung" (village) atmosphere to the city as well as give the opportunity to city dwellers as well as foreign tourists a glimpse of the State's rich cultural heritage.
Meanwhile, visitors will be able to stroll along Gaya Street just near the traditional house for the Kaamatan Bazaar from 6am to 12pm where more than 150 stalls have been set up selling traditional delicacies, decorations as well crafts.
The main stage is also set to host more cultural performances as well as the much-anticipated Unduk Ngadau pageant.
Visitors will also be entertained by choir performances by Sabah College as well as song performances by artistes, including Donna, Valerie, Rifanzi and Linda AF.
