SIBU: Two events will be held simultaneously from June 9 to 11 at two different locations here as part of Visit Sibu Year (VSY).
Sibu Municipal Council (SMC) chairman Datuk Tiong Thai King said one is the Artistic Gaming Entertainment (AGE) Convention which will be held at Sibu Indoor Stadium from 10am to 10pm.
He said the convention is jointly organised by SMC and Sanyan Road Recreational Club.
“It will be the state’s first and largest AGE Convention, comprising an artistic and comic gallery, sculpting and handicraft (both traditional and modern), board games and e-sports (console and PC games) and cosplay.
“The convention offers an opportunity for participants to express their creativity whilst establishing good rapport with fellow participants from various places and different walks of life but of the same interest,” he said when chairing a monthly meeting of the council yesterday.
The other event is the Sibu Street Art Festival which will be held at Chuan Corridor in Sibu Town Square from 11am to 9pm.
This event, Tiong said, will feature a street art gallery, creative bazaar, vintage mini theatre, street busking, mural photo booths and a fun park for kids.
On another matter, Tiong said that the public can now make payment for compounds and over-parking online through Paybills Malaysia.
He said it was the council’s initiative to ease the payment process for public convenience as online payment can be done anywhere and anytime.
“Therefore, I encourage the public to make payment online to save time and cost,” he said.
