BALI EVENT'S CALENDAR
April 20, 2019 All Day
The day reserved for ceremonial puppets is called Tumpek Wayang. A puppeteer will take all the puppets, perhaps more than 100, out of their wooden box (keropak) and line them up on a banana tree trunk (gedebong) as if to be used for a real performance. Then special offerings are made. Dance costumes, masks and barong are also blessed on this day. In some villages with sacred barong, a barong performance is held on the evening of the day after Tumpek Wayang.
