The word “creative” and the city “Bandung” is like a lovey-dovey couple who have a strong and long relationship. You can’t separate Bandung and Creative because it has become strong bond between them and difficult to separate.

Ghost Parade team had a nice chit-chat with Little Bandung team about the superiority of Ghost Parade product and the reason why we choose Indonesia ghost culture as our main theme.
From here, Ghsot Parade shows the unique side of the product such as introducing Indonesian culture, Indonesian legend story and myth and Indonesian spirits from different sides and perspective to make it accessible to public from all the ages.
Because Ghost Parade presents Indonesian ghost into a funny creature and provides knowledge about supernatural culture it instantly makes the visitors become curious. After the talks are over, Ghost Parade booth instantly raided by buyers interested in the funny ghosts of Ghost Parade.
The visitor’s response is very positive here, even many visitors who previously already know Ghost Parade from a digital comic didn’t expect if Ghost Parade originally from Bandung. Many visitors are interested in Ghost Parade and curious about the character of Ghost Parade.
