(8/25/2003)

Organized by the Kuta Small Business Association (KSBA), a month-long Kuta Karnival offers a compelling island-wide calendar of events centered on Bali's famed "sunset beach" of Kuta. National and international talents from the world of sports and musical entertainment are scheduled to appear in a wide-range of fun-filled activities.

Sports and Athletic Activities

A week-long Surfing Legends Competition will be among numerous highlights during a month of fun in the sun at Bali's first Kuta Karnival, September 11 to October 12. Other sporting events include skateboarding competitions; a "Paddle for Peace" challenge from Jimbaran to Kuta; competitive team beach sports; surf life-saving contests; surfing and body boarding competitions; and speed climbing. Sport tournament scheduled during the month include international Rugby Union, Aussie Rules football; an international women's tennis tournament, along with an exhibition organized by the World Boxing Association. Beach volleyball and soccer events will be open to local and international teams. Need more? A weekly Hash House Harriers running event, dubbed Rock & Run Race, is also on slate.

Wide Range of Activities

Visitors to Bali during the month of the Karnival will be spoiled for choice in terms of activities available for their enjoyment. In addition to numerous musical groups scheduled to appear at various venues in Kuta during the month, special culinary events will also be offered featuring Asian and international fare. Challengers will have the chance to try to set records for the largest satay lilit, a grilled Balinese delicacy of skewered meat.

A mass group meditation is planned and efforts to see how many surfers can ride a single wave. Dance, culture, art and drama, fashion shows and sculpture exhibitions are also on tap. There's more: photos and art exhibitions, fashion shows, Bali surf memorabilia, and kite-flying contests – help to fill out a very full program for the month.

Celebrating Life

Celebrating life and living in peace, the festival commemorates the New York World Trade Center terrorist tragedy in 2001 and Bali's bomb explosions 13 months later. Opening with a Peace Ceremony, events will wrap with a festive street parade October 11, concluding with a candlelight remembrance ceremony on October 12. Beach-side events include 1,000 silent dancers followed by the sounding of gongs or village drums across the island.

Bali expects to welcome 1,500 Australian family members and victims to the island of the October 12th bombing tragedy as part of the commemoration.
