TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - A shopping mall in Solo, Central Java offers durian party event starting November 30 until December 2, 2018. The event themed Pesta Durian #2 takes place in Hartono Mall, Solo.
“We hold durian party for three days,” said Elfizia Carina, an official at Hartono Mall Solo Baru, Friday, November 30.
Elfizia said the event was held following the succession and high public enthusiasm on the last year’s durian party. “The public is quite enthusiastic, so we hold again the event this year,” she said.
The organizers provided hundreds of pungent fruit every day which were delivered from several durians producing regions including Karanganyar, Banyumas, Jepara, Gunung Pati, and Wonosobo.
The fruit was on sale in limited times starting at 10 a.m until 4 p.m local times. “We will likely close the event if the fruit is sold before 4 p.m,” Elfizia added.
She continued that the price was set in two systems. First, from 10 a.m until 12 p.m, visitors could get two for a single purchase. “The price is based on the quality and size [of the durian],” she explained.
Meanwhile starting 12 p.m until 4 p.m, visitors could get three durians for Rp100,000. “We call it a happy hour session,” said Elfizia.
