At least 65,000 people lined the eight-kilometre stretch from the National Palace to the business district in southern Jakarta during the weekly car-free day event in capital Jakarta. 

Participants hope to promote the beauty of Indonesian culture through "poco-poco", a popular line dance that originated from the eastern Indonesian Sulawesi province. 

Over 11,000 athletes from 45 nations are expected to participate in Asian Games in Indonesian cities Jakarta and Palembang from August 18 to September 2.
