Megantara is a cultural festival held by SMAN 3 Bandung. This festival was held on 10th September 2016 at Lapangan Bali. The open gate was actually at 11:35 AM, but for all grade 10 should come at 07:30 AM to participate a parade. We were told to wear sundanese traditional clothes, pangsi for the male and kebaya for the female. It wasn't just grade 10 who participated the parade, there were also children from many kindergarten. Actually the parade was one of Megantara event. The parade started from Bali Street to Belitung Street, Sumatera Street, Merdeka Street, Jawa Street, and then back to Bali street. The seniors told us to sing a song or saying our yell yell while walking. We didn't know what song to sing and we don't have any yell yell, so my friends and I got an idea to sing a song for promoting Megantara. We yelled like mad until our throat sore. Then, a senior followed to sing. He commanded all of students to sing.
After the parade, I changed my clothes. Then, I went to Takolada with Dhea and Fathya. We ate and talked about remedial and many other things, waiting for the open gate. At around 12:00 AM after pray dzuhur, we went to Megantara. At the entrance, we got a free drink. There weren't so much people yet, but the show had already started. There were many performance, especially traditional performance such as angklung from Keluarga Paduan Angklung 3, Wayang Golek Putra Giri Harja 3, rampak kendang from Darul Hikam, traditional dance, traditional song from Kelompok Vokal 3 and many more. The most excited show was the traditional fashion show. Each class of grade 10 should send 4 representative to participate the fashion show. So there were 34 students who participated the fashion show because each student represented traditional cloth from one province. The jury who rate the fashion show was Ridwan Kamil. The winner of this fashion show was the one who represented Papua. There, I met a lot of my friends, especially friends when I was in junior high school. We talked a lot of story. Then, we bought some foods and drinks. We sat on the ground while watching the performance. And we didn't forget to take our picture at batik background that was prepared by the organizer.
At around 4:00 PM, the people started to fill this place. They knew that the most exciting performance would be showed at the night, especially The Changcuters and RAN. Those band was performing at the night. It was around 08:00 PM until 10:00 PM. I went home around 09:30 PM, after watched some performance from RAN.
