Sidoarjo Cultural Parade

Last Sunday my city, Sidoarjo, celebrate its 156th birthday. We have cultural parade. People dress up culturally and festive, riding unique vehicles. They march, dance, and playing music. We have so much fun watching the parade. Our government also providing about 6000 free meals! Isn't that wonderful? I have the opportunity watching the dancers prepare for the parade, they are professionals and I can see that they are having fun as I am. I must commit that I was so excited watching, taking photos, and interact with them.

Pawai Budaya Sidoarjo

Preparing the unique vehicles and costums before the parade began. They were really hard working to show off their beautiful culture.
