BALI PLUS Magazine July 2016
If you’re coming to Bali to find some culture, then you have to catch a coming-of-age ritual where bare-breasted local village boys partake in friendly duels with each other. Called the Perang Pandan War Dance or “Mekare-Kare” this event takes place annually around this time of the year in the village of Tenganan in East Bali and it’s something you really don’t want to miss! Other cultural events to take note of are the Bali Kite Festival in Sanur and the Mekepung Buffalo Races in West Bali. Do check out our Don’t Miss page for more cultural events happening this month.
