“We changed the date because we also want to promote Bogor’s tourism agenda to guests of the Asian Games,” said Shahlan, the head of Bogor’s Tourism and Culture Agency.

A range of artistic performances from various art studios and carnival participants will take place at this year’s parade. The event is set to attract 5,000 attendees consisting of art studio enthusiasts, schools, universities, communities and members of Bogor’s city government.

It will take place on Jl. Sudirman from 6 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (anm/wng)
