“We started our preparations for the festival in February this year. We have been improving the facilities in various locations around PJ such as improving the five foot ways for pedestrians, building the boulevard to foster more interaction among residents. Our efforts will continue after the festival is over as we head towards becoming a barrier-free city,” said Haniza Abdul Hamid, Director of Public Relations, MBPJ.

MBPJ have been actively collaborating with the PJ community in its efforts in publicizing the festival. Restaurant operators and owners in the vicinity have been supporting the festival over the past few months. The council is also working together with students at nearby art college to come up with creative ideas for the festival and beyond such as design and painting trash bins placed all over the city.
