Lomba ini juga, kita melibatkan anak-anak generasi muda, agar mereka mencintai budaya dan kearifan lokal di kawasan Danau Toba,” ujar Debbie di acara yang dihadiri Ketua Dewan Kesenian Sumatera Utara Baharuddin Syahputra.

Selain itu, festival tersebut juga memperlombakan kuliner khas Toba yakni Naniura. Juga telah digelar sebelumnya, lomba aksara Batak, lomba ketapel dan lainnya.

Sehingga diharapkan banyaknya kegiatan yang melibatkan masyarakat, terutama generasi muda, dapat menularkan orang lain untuk mencintai Danau Toba dengan segala kekayaannya.

Karena darimanapun, Danau Toba itu cantik panoramanya, flora fauna, dan juga peninggalan sejarah serta kekayaan budayanya,” jelas Debbie sekaligus mewakili Kepala Dinas Kebudayaan dan Pariwisata Sumut Zumri Sulthony.

Therefore, various efforts to preserve the wealth of this world heritage continue to be carried out.

 

 

“This is the first festival since Lake Toba became a member of UGG. So we are here to hold a traditional dance competition, where there are four clans around the Lake Toba area, namely Pakpak, Karo and Toba. That’s why we have three greetings, Mejuah-juah, Njuah- njuah and Horas. We also involve young generation in this competition, so that they love the culture and local wisdom in the Lake Toba area,” said Debbie at the event which was attended by the Chairman of the North Sumatra Arts Council, Baharuddin Syahputra.

Because from anywhere, Lake Toba has beautiful panoramas, flora and fauna, as well as historical heritage and cultural wealth,” explained Debbie as well as representing the Head of the North Sumatra Culture and Tourism Office, Zumri. Sulthony.

 

This competition is also a starting point so that various events can be held in the Toba Caldera Geopark area, especially teaching the younger generation to love their area.

Meanwhile, the Daily Head of the UNESCO Global Geopark Toba Caldera Management Agency, Mangindar Simbolon before opening the festival activities, said that the natural wealth in the Lake Toba area needs to be managed properly.

There is an element of conservation in order to maintain its basic value. Then education, where education to the younger generation really needs to be instilled from an early age.

“No less important is how the Toba Caldera Geopark encourages community economic empowerment. Therefore, let’s support each other so that all three can be achieved,” said Mangindar.

At the festival, hundreds of people from a number of regions performed dances created by the Somba-Somba tortors typical of Simalungun and Hata Sopiksik from Toba. There was also the signing of a memorandum of understanding/MoU between the Toba Caldera UNESCO Global Geopark and the Silokek National Geopark of West Sumatra. ***
