Omed-Omedan, 'festival of splashes and smooches'
March 18, 2018 All Day
Omed-Omedan is a traditional festivity restricted to the village of Sesetan. It is held on the day after Nyepi (see above), when the youth and whole sub-village of Banjar Kaja Sesetan take to the street where water is splashed and sprayed, and the highlight being two sides of the crowd in a tug-o-war-like scene with a pair in the middle ‘forced’ to smooch at each interval.
