Colours and Fireworks at the Kuching Waterfront | Malaysia Day 2013
The parade is held in conjunction with the 50th Anniversary of Sarawak’s Independence in Malaysia. On 16th September 1963, Sarawak together with North Borneo (Sabah), Singapore and Malaya came together to form Malaysia, a day that was finally recognised nationally in 2009 and a national public holiday declared the following year. This means that Malaysia has two celebrations related to independence; the other one being the National Day, celebrated on Aug 31st each year.
So be there at the Kuching Waterfront from 7.30pm onwards.
