Festive Penglipuran Village Festival

Festive Penglipuran Village FestivalVarious arts and cultural activities jazzed up the Penglipuran Village Festival. The first time event was packed through the performance of traditional arts. “The event is to introduce the existence of Penglipuran traditional village in front of travelers,” said Chief of Penglipuran customary village, Wayan Supat, amid the opening ceremony, Wednesday (Dec 25).

The festival taking place from December 25, 2013 through January 1, 2014, organized a variety of competitions and performing arts. Among others, they were coloring contest, customary fashion show, photography and souvenir-making contest for high school / vocational school and general level. Meanwhile, the art performance included the bamboo musical entertainment and bondres gag, a traditional comedy.

Chief Supat said that in addition to promoting the village, the festival was also meant to develop tourism supporting products where one of which was the Penglipuran typical souvenir. “The competition will be looking for a distinctive souvenir of Penglipuran village in the future,” he said.
Penglipuran traditional village had its own excellence, explained Chief Supat, namely in the matter of house architecture, such as the entrance gates or angkul-angkul remaining to look beautiful. All entrance gates were uniform (similar but not identical) that looked very beautiful. Similarly, the traditional houses were still preserved up to the present time dominated by the characteristic bamboo materials.

“All these advantages are liked best by travelers, so those traveling to Bali consider it incomplete if they do not come to visit the Penglipuran traditional village in Bangli,” said Supat while adding the average tourist visits to Penglipuran reached 125 people per day.

Deputy Regent of Bangli, Sedana Arta, said after opening the festival that Penglipuran traditional village had excellent prospects if it continued to be stimulated through cultural arts activities. “We do hope that Penglipuran Village Festival will become an annual event with the more attractive and appealing activities that can increase the traffic of tourist arrival,” he said.
