BEC (Banyuwangi Ethno Carnival)

Banyuwangi Ethno Carnival is one of chain Banyuwangi anniversary events.This fashion carnival  is premiere on October 22, 2011 with theme Gandrung, Damarwulan, and Kundaran. This event is participated by 300 students all over Banyuwangi. They can mix, match, and modify their own costume to show. Banyuwangi government held this event which aims to preserve native culture Banyuwangi.

The opening of this event was started with performance of 119 Jejer Gandrung Dancers. Then there were damarwulan art performance, and fot the last it was followed by Kanduran art.


Their colorful costumes are beautiful, right? Therefore i think this event can develope everyone's creativity as well. And I really respect to those who paticipated it, because they could smile yet to audience while they brought heavy costume.

But, can you imagine how weight is that costume? Anyhow the participant should prepare not only the mental, but also the health. Because how can it works while they walk along the road as catwalk approximately 3 km to demonstrate it?

My family and I went to see this event. And oh no, there were so many people thronging around the road. Unfortunately, in the middle of the event, it rained. The weather didn't favor it. So we all got soaking wet. However it didn't make us give up. We even watched it until the end.

The participants with their various costumes stayed spirit and spread their smiles. They were so kind too when the people asked to take the pictures together.

At the end of the event, there would be the winner with the most unique cotume. 

Anyhow this event will become the annual event. So, wait for the next post about the next event.
