Venue: Dataran Bandaraya, Johor Bahru

The Floral Fest 2008 parade is designed to foster unity, peace and harmony through participation, teamwork and good, old fashioned fun. The parade will feature marching bands, traditional performances interspersed with a convoy of floats decorated in a full tattoo of colours and finished with a painstakingly and delicately woven blanket of vibrant floral species to create unique designs. The individual floats will be judged on creativity, animation, display of flowers, relevance to the theme and also the technical details of the float. Participants will have an opportunity of winning any of the awards for the 6 different categories including one for International entries.

The Flora Parade start at 9:00 am between the football field and the sea (next to the hosipital). This is from the signboard stated at JB and at Danga Bay. They will keep the display in a very big air-condition tent at Danga Bay until 28 July. Location is next to the fishing pond and opposite the Danga Bay's Festive Street Mall (a shopping street).

I will try to find some map if I could.

The location is at the seaside. When you exit from Malaysia custom turn left and walk alone the seaside road (direction to west, City Square is north). The walking distance is about three time the distance from Malaysia custom to City Square, driving time 1 mintue, walking time about 15-20 mintues.

suria city
grand bluewave hotel
and naza hotel

all this shuttle will stop at Simpang Mahmoodiah / Hyatt Hotel.. any idea where is this place?
the time are: 7.30 a.m untul 3.00 p.m." ( didn't tell me the frequency)

Is it a long event? The shuttle buses are till 3pm.

Looks like at the Danga Bay big white tent, hundreds of people are working day and night to make sure the parade is on schedule. In the tent the temperature is very cool (about 20 degree C).

Here is how it look like in the tent.


For any person interested to view more picture about the Floral Parade please refer the thread in Reportage and Sports section.

The Parade start at 9 am before the big hot sun up in the sky, and ended at the Danga Bay where they park all the floral cars in the cool air condition tent. The tent is open to the public to take a close up picture of the floral cars.

To answer your question, I am not the organizer but I think the parade will take about one hour, the remaining depend how long you need to take the picture.

Below is one of the actual floral car that you will see in the coming Saturday.

According to the Danga Bay's roadside advertising flags indicate that Floral Parade started at Dataran Bandaraya to Teluk Daga Johor Bahru 9am 26 July 2008.

Static Display of Floats & Bazaar
Teluke Danga, Johor Bahru
26-28 July 2008 (Sat-Mon)

The only road to the Floral Parade area is the same road use by Floats, normally the traffic police will block the road for the traffic. The main stage located between the padang (opp. Hyatt Hotel) and the sea. If they block the traffic then no bus can go thru. Outside there are alot of taxi if you need them.

I have tried to load pictures from Picasa, I faced the same problem.
It can be displayed in CS a few times and thereafter, all images went
missing from the posts. I believe that Picasa has some limitations on
cross-linking.

Some other choices are CS Gallery or Flickr.

Cheers,
Jason

I saw some contractor still working on the sound system, some on moving parts on the display.

One contractor told me that his project cost about RM300,000/float.

Following is the completed floats ready to go:
