BALI EVENT'S CALENDAR
Pengrupukan, New Year's Eve of the Saka Calendar
March 16, 2018 All Day
The eve of the Saka New Year is loud and festive, before the day of silence. All the celebrative commotion takes place in the afternoon, and grotesque ogoh-ogoh papier-mâché effigies are paraded throughout the streets. The evening features fire torches and firecrackers, meant to rid the land of malevolent forces.
