Jogja Java Carnival 2011

Jogjakarta, one of Indonesia's favorite tourist destination held a yearly festival called Jogja Java Carnival (JJC). This festival is usually being held in mid October, though this year, it was held at 22nd October. This year was the most spectacular one I've ever seen! People from all over Indonesia and even from other countries came to celebrate. The more the merrier! The show started at about 7.30 PM. The crowd was wild. Small people, big people, children, old people, cartoon characters, men, women, and even trans gender came to celebrate the night! Everything was so beautifully colorful! I stayed there until midnight, and one word to described it: AWESOME!

Started with this colorful guy...

Then came the Javaness Princess! She's so beautiful!

Suddenly, this old Wonder Wo"Man" came to cheer the night.

They also have this pretty rainbow car…

Even Spongebob showed up! Nice to meet him =)

The crowd started to get wild! They even climb the tower and roof tops.

People from other countries came too! This lovely couple is from India.

Then there's the famous Jugde Bao from China.

Even an Egyptian creature came!

The people from Arabia's 1001 Night!

And there's this funky golden girl came from nowhere! So amazing!

Not to forget this girl wannabe! Lots of kisses for the guys!

And the music is played by this accordion guy!

A scary Balinese monster started to dance!

And look at this adorable little girl!

They even brought the Trojan Horse in town!

And an AMAZING dragon came to end the night!

It was like a fantasy! What a wonderful experience! I can't wait for next year =)
