George Town Festival 2011: Tapestry of Cultures July 7, 8, 9

George Town Festival 2011 Event Program for Tapestry of Cultures on July 7, 8, 9

So much to experience on Thursday night (and so much to eat), it's difficult to decide which place to go.  But for food, save your appetite for the Nasi Kandar Food Festival in Little India, and for the traditional snacks at Meng Eng Soo open house.  Have a wonderful time!
