Galungan is a Balinese holiday that signifies the victory of Virtue (Dharma) over Evil (Adharma). This important festival occurs every 210 days and lasts for 10 days. This year, Galungan falls on Wednesday 10 February 2016. During this period you will see many Balinese dressed in their finest clothes bearing elaborate offerings to their temple.

In preparation for the Galungan celebrations, each family will create a “penjor”, a long arching decorated bamboo pole that they will placed at the entrance of their home. Ornamented with colorful flowers, fruits, and other items to create a very festive atmosphere all around Bali Island.

As always, every year South Kuta Beach Business Associations (SKBBA) has organized Penjor and Gebogan competition that will be happening on the 05th February 2016 and takes place on outside Lippo Mall Kuta area. The competition will be running starting from 08:00 until 14:00 and the Gebogan competition will be starting at 10:00 until 13:00.

The judges will be selecting winners at the end of the event prior to placing the Penjors on the streets on Friday afternoon. So we are inviting everyone and all our guest to give Bali Garden Team a support! Last year we have won the 1st place for Penjor competition and hopefully we can win the competition again this year.
