- Experience Purnama Karo celebrations in Bali

June 26, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can reveal that business trippers who are booking Seminyak hotels for the end of July should make sure that they take in the cultural celebrations of Purnam Karo.

The event takes place on the island of Bali on July 26th 2010 and marks the full moon, an occasion which is always widely celebrated by the locals.

On Purnama Karo, hundreds of holy buildings across Bali will hold a special day of celebrations and festivities to mark what the official site of the pilgrimage temple at Tanah Lot describes as "an auspicious day".

People who head down from their Seminyak hotels to check out the goings on are likely to see revellers give their offerings to their local temples, while all corners of the paradise island will be decked out in fine decorations.

The full moon is a big deal to the Indonesian people, with numerous parties planned to mark the occasion every month.

July 26th is also the start of this year's Tanah Lot Art Festival, an event which is set to run until August 5th, featuring traditional Balinese dances, exhibitions of pictures and sculptures, plus the flying of giant colourful kites.

Organisers of the festival hope that it will help to introduce the island's art and culture to the rest of the world.
