Jalan Uluwatu I in Jimbaran will be closed to all traffic on Friday, March 4, 2011, to allow a massive Ogoh Ogoh and baleganjur orchestra parade and competition on the day before the Bali-Hindu New Year celebration of Nyepi.

The parade of large paper mache floats carried on the shoulders of village youths will cause vehicles coming from the direction of Kedonganan to be diverted to Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai in Jimbaran.

Village officials are seeking the cooperation and understanding of vehicle owners who will be inconvenienced by the celebratory parade.

According to Made Budiasa, kelian of the traditional village of Jimbaran, told the press that the parade and competition will be centered in his village starting from 10:00 am in the morning of March 4th with the road remaining closed until the middle of the night.

Officials have indicated, however, that vehicles owned by people living in Jimbaran will be allowed limited access to their homes and businesses.

Vehicles coming from the north or Kedonganan will be diverted to the east in the direction of the Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai. Other vehicles trying to leave the Jimbaran area and the InterContinental Resort will be sent on a southerly route toward Jalan Uluwatu II towards the Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai. Vehicles traveling from Bukit Ungasan will be sent towards the Bypass starting from the Simpang Kali intersection.

Officials promise to install signage to assist motorists and avoid possible miscommunication.

This is the first time that the traditional village of Jimbaran will hold an Ogoh-Ogoh and baleganjur (traditional orchestra) competition between 12 youth associations in the area.

Each of the competing groups have been funded Rp. 10 million (US$1,100) by the village of Jimbaran to help fund the Ogoh Ogoh project. Local government bodies are providing additional financial support.
