For the first time LAWSOC in collaboration with Steadfast Club, is organising an event that provides more than 40 vendors for the visitors, throughout for four days starting from 14 until 17 November.
A “Project Nostalgia Fiesta” provides the stall and activities such as food, photo booth, happy hour, lucky draw, costume day and performance by “Buskers”, Dikir Barat by Sutra Pawana IIUM, the martial art of silat, and Tarian Zapin by Nafas Tari.
Meanwhile, this collaboration, for the Steadfast Club members, it is a great opportunity for them to grab a chance in conjunction with celebration of 25th anniversary of the club since its establishment.
