Erau Festival

20th September

Tenggarong on Mahakam River, East Kalimantan

Its interesting enough to get a glimpse of the Dayak culture which roots are deep in the heart of Kalimantan (Borneo). Held to commemorate Tenggarongs birthday as the capital city of an ancient kingdom several centuries ago. Traditional Dayak and Malay sport events will be held to add to the festivities, however, the highlight of them all is throwing on the mock dragon in to the Mahakam River, one of the widest and longest river in the country.
