    The 4th Ponorogo Heritage Festival

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     These extraordinary images shot in 2011 at a city festival in Eastern Java, Indonesia, capture locals celebrating the area's rich cultural heritage. The remarkably strange dances and live street theater, with costumed men pretending to eat grass in honor of spirits and men whipping each other with sticks in a rain dance, caught the eye of local iReporter and lecturer okicahyo. "The artists, art communities and schools from local people become major participants and other art communities are sent by their governments from other cities," he said.

    The third image here was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for August 19, 2012
