A village festival might probably mean an environment with traditional dance, authentic recipes, children playing traditional games and lots of local vendors selling local artistic products.

Sanur has one of the best white sand beaches, which is magnificently sheltered with reefs, ideal for family and calm environment seekers.

Balinese people and the organizing community dedicate this festival to the world community.
