Milne Bay prepares for festival

The people of Milne Bay Province have been preparing for the Kenu and Kundu festival which will begin tomorrow and end on Sunday.

Kenu and Kundu festival chairman Henry Benoma told Loop PNG today in Milne Bay that the province had been looking forward to hosting this event and to showing  the culture of Milne Bay people.

He said the National Government had not made a mistake to host this festival which is the traditional part of the Milne Bay people.

Benoma said the province had a greater vision of promoting the culture and traditions of its people to the outside world in terms of tourism and such an event is one of those strategies.

He said the preparations had started two weeks ago and they were looking forward to the event.

“All preparations on the ground are up to date with different stalls erected belonging to sponsors and indigenous small business to showcase their items.”

Benoma added that this year the event will be much more locally oriented in terms of participation. 

This will be the 12th Kenu and Kundu festival.
