The procession begins with worship at the Banjar temple. All participants omed-omedan begged permission to be granted to the ancestors of safety. After that omed-omedan began.

However, when the tradition omed-omedan terminated, the plague struck the village. Many strange things popping up. Like a pig who suddenly kissing each other in the village street.
