Nowadays children are more interested in modern events more than events that preserve culture. This is due to the development of technology accompanied by modern events and forgetting regional cultural events. With the character degeneration, it is necessary to strengthen character education. The character of a child formed from a person is influenced by family and environmental factors. The important role of parents and society are very important for the sustainability of local culture. The process of character dissemination is not only through class but also utilizing the environment.
