Procession of Mass Circumcision

Indramayu is a fertile agricultural region with a population most of whom are Muslims. Once the harvest is usually the people there will do the circumcision of their sons is an obligation in Islam. But not everyone is able to perform circumcision. Because there are some costs to be incurred such as paying doctors and invite neighbors to just celebrate the happiness.

So when the harvest comes, usually rich people will donate a portion of their harvest to perform mass circumcision for the poor. Villagers mostly participated in the event. They will make some entertainment events voluntarily. As captured in this image is a parade event to entertain children who will be circumcised.
