Manokwari Cultural Street Parade 6 February 2011

Still in commemorating the Gospel Preaching Day, today the government of West Papua province conducted a Papuan cultural street parade which is also called "karnaval budaya." More than seventy groups participated in the event which started at 4 p.m. until night time walking from Sanggeng to Borarsi football field. When I am writing this post all the groups have arrived in Borarsi but the celebration is still going on. The participants of the cultural parade come from tribes in Papua and most of the tribes in Indonesia (or known as Nusantara). Thousands of people watched the parade on both sides of the streets of Manokwari city.

Papuan Cultural Street Parade is an annual event which is conducted every 6 February, one day after the celebration of the Gospel Landing Day in Mansinam island. by Charles Roring
