Traditional Games: Tarik Tambang & Lompat Karung
April 28 @ 2:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Enjoy the sensation of being Indonesian citizens with collective spirit and soul by taking part in these traditional games: Balap Karung (Sack Race), Tarik Tambang (Tug of War), Tinju Air (Pillow Fights over the Water), and Balap Perahu Dayung (Paddle Boat Races).
Lomba Balap Karung is a race towards a finishing line with lower part of your body cooped inside a rice sack. It may sound easy but it is hard to execute. The sack race will prevent you from moving fast towards the end point. Once in a while (or maybe more than once), you will tumble down and you just have to get up and continue hopping along until the end.
Tarik Tambang involves two opposing teams trying to pull each other to a designated middle point. This game could only be won with unity and cohesiveness amongst all the team members. Team members need to cooperate with each other in order to beat the opponent. In the end, after the entire struggle, the fruit of labor can be enjoyed by everyone.
