All dance which performed have story such as heroic, romantic, daily activity and more. After all guest saw all dances, next they saw wayang, (the story which presented with traditional puppets). This show performed from night until morning approximately 2:00 AM.

Batik is cloth which consist of various ornament, usually with small ornament in it and colour like brown, black, white. This event presented on the way to Mangkunegaran Palace where usually held night market, Ngarsopuro Market. This is the clothing show on citywalk, all models with Batik Cloth walked on catwalk perfectly. Costume whom they wear had been modification with modern creation. All Photographers took the picture.
