Kuta Sidewalk Festival

Indonesians are great people for putting on spectacular festivals and I have seen a fair share on my travels around the archipelago. Bali is no different to any of the other islands and they enjoy a good festival or two…or three or four! Coming up this month on the 17th August is Indonesia’s Independence Day and the Balinese intend to celebrate this important date by putting on a 3-day sidewalk festival in Kuta. So, if you are travelling to Bali around this time then don’t miss this great festival. It proves to be an excellent day. Here’s more from the Bali Discovery:
