Today, the biggest Banjarnegara event in this month (I think this year) is begin.
Banjarnegara have a big project named SERAYU FESTIVAL.
This event still have link to the celebration of Banjarnegara's birthday.Serayu is the name of main river in Central Java.
It flows across on five regency; Wonosobo, Banjarnegara, Purbalingga, Banyumas and Cilacap.
The spring is on the Dieng Plateau Wonosobo, and it's called Bimalukar Spring.
