JAKARNAVAL 2013

Jakarnaval was held to celebrate the capital, Jakarta's 486th birthday. Held by the provincial government of Jakarta, this year's Jakarnaval took place in Thamrin area in the central part of Jakarta. The government closed down an entire street to accommodate the festival. Thousands of Jakartans poured into the street to watch this spectacle, as the people of Jakarta rarely see this kind of festival. Hundreds of artists from all over Jakarta took part, performing dances and music unique to Jakarta. What's really interesting in this carnival is our governor Mr. Jokowi also took part as a participant, wearing some kind of "eco" costume. Honestly it was quite funny seeing him in that outfit, this was proved by the crowd as they are laughing happily as he pass by riding his horse. But it was a joyful laugh, perhaps the people are happy they have such a humble leader who's close to his people. Here are some of the photos I took during the festival
