Indonesia, 29th Aug 2022, King NewsWire, Membeko Festival 2022, which was held by the Bontang Kuala Village with the community, to celebrate the 77th Indonesian Independence Day, was centered on the Bontang Kuala traditional stage, Saturday (27/8/2022).
Membeko is a tradition of breakfast for the indigenous people of Bontang Kuala before their activities, in order to keep the body stronger and full of energy.
This tradition had been lost and had not been implemented for a long time, so it was re-emerged to maintain customs for the next generation.
“Thank you to Pupuk Kaltim for fully supporting this activity, so that the Membeko Festival can be held in an effort to maintain the customs and culture of the Bontang Kuala people,” said Bontang Kuala Lurah Suiza Ixan Saputro.
This year’s Membeko Festival presents 25 types of food, consisting of 8 types of Bontang Kuala specialties and 17 side dishes served in 48 trays.
All meals were held to be eaten with the people present.
“We encourage this activity to continue, so that the potential of Bontang Kuala as a mainstay tourist destination for Bontang City is growing in attracting tourists,” added Suiza.
VP of Public Services for Pupuk Kaltim, Sugeng Suedi, said that the company strongly supports the implementation of the Membeko Festival, as a form of the company’s closeness and togetherness with the community.
This is also Pupuk Kaltim’s step in encouraging freezing as a tradition that must be maintained, so that it can continue to be sustainable and develop into the mainstay potential of the Bontang City tourism sector.
“This is also a form of Pupuk Kaltim’s active role in preserving cultural customs, as the wealth and local wisdom of Bontang that must be preserved,” said Sugeng.
Bontang Mayor Basri Rase, said that the government is very supportive of making the festival an annual agenda, to develop tourism potential as well as to encourage Bontang as a center for MSMEs in East Kalimantan.
Moreover, the Bontang City Government has signed a collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy regarding the development of tourism potential, as a form of regional readiness to welcome IKN which will be implemented through synergy and collaboration with various parties.
“This is an effort to support Bontang’s readiness to encourage the tourism sector and MSME centers in East Kalimantan, by prioritizing local potential as an advantage,” said Basri.
