COVID-19: Borneo Balloon Fiesta Postponed

KUCHING: The Borneo Balloon Fiesta 2020 which was originally scheduled for April 11-12 at Dataran Celebrati, Stadium Negeri, Petra Jaya has been postponed until further notice.

Event organiser Nex Vision Sdn Bhd said in a statement the current COVID-19 outbreak has made it impossible to predict the situation during the event’s planned dates.

“Although we look forward to putting up a spectacular fiesta for the first time in Kuching, the well-being of the community takes precedence during this period of health concerns,” the statement said.

However, the organiser is still eager to bring the event back as soon as they get a favourable update from the State Disaster Management Committee.

Sarawak has urged that all government and public gatherings involving the participation of more than 50 people in the state to be postponed or deferred to a later date.
