Once a month Khoo Kongsi switches on its LED lighting for visitors. It is usually on either the third or last Saturday of each month with Penang Global Tourism arranging cultural shows and performances for the spectators. On Saturday, 22nd February there were drummers, Chinese Orchestra playing beautiful music, Chinese Yoyo and the main event was a Snake Show. The crowd was held enthralled by the brave antics of the Snake Performer culminating in kissing a 16-ft King Cobra, not once but numerous times. The whole evening’s entertainment was from 7 to 10 p.m. with souvenir stalls and hawkers food being sold for the spectators to take their dinner while enjoying their family outing at the beautiful and magnificent Khoo Kongsi.
It was indeed a memorable evening for families and friends at Khoo Kongsi, Penang. Hopefully they will look back at this Family Evening spent at Khoo Kongsi’s Evening of Lights with fond memories. Thank you Lim Soo Peng for your photos.
