The festival also features a wide range of inexpensive, tasty, Halal food (food prepared according to the Muslim way); readings by children from the Holy Quran; zebra dove and bulbul singing contests; demonstrations of leatherwork; and many other attractions highlighting the traditional lifestyle of Kamala’s mainly Muslim community.

There is also an exhibition on sustainable tourism, and stalls featuring products from the 14 provinces of Southern Thailand.
