Kota Kinabalu City Day Celebrations 2011

March 2, 2011 at 2:00 pm

Although Kota Kinabalu’s City Day has officially come and gone on 2nd February, the festivities that commemorate this memorable day stretch the entire month of February and spills over to March. City Day in Kota Kinabalu is not only a celebration for the city and its people, but also the surrounding districts and outlying areas as well. It is no wonder then that there is a large number of events organised around this momentous occasion.

And so Sabah’s capital, Kota Kinabalu, continues to celebrate its city day with two more events at the start of the month of March. The first is the International Sabah Open Dart Tournament 2011, a popular dart throwing event that is being held for the sixth time. It will take place from the 4th to 6th March at the Kota Kinabalu Community Centre. Three categories will be contested, including a Team event, Mens Singles, and Ladies Singles, with cash prizes of RM 600 to RM 7,000 for the champions of each category. The closing date for registration for this event is 4th March 2011 and those who are interested should contact the Kota Kinabalu City Hall at +60 88 521800.

The second event held in conjunction with Kota Kinabalu’s City Day in March is the Kota Kinabalu City Run 2011. This year’s run, which commemorates the 11th anniversary of Kota Kinabalu’s city status, will be held on 6th March 2011, at 6:30 am at the Merdeka Square, Kota Kinabalu. This year’s theme for the run is ‘Run For 1′ and will be a 4 kilometre run. It promises to be a fun filled event, and participants will stand a chance to win prizes in a lucky draw at the end of the race. Registration forms are available for download at the Kota Kinabalu website.
