(3/14/2012)

In the lead up to Nyepi - Bali’s day of absolute silence – that heralds the start of the New Year on the Bali-Hindu calendar, police in Bali have issued a order outlawing the use of fireworks and firecrackers on the long night of celebration on the New Year’s Eve.

The warning follows a large number of tragic accidents blamed on incendiary devices over the December 31, 2011 New Year’s period.

Quoted by Kompas.com, Police Commissioner Hariadi, in announcing the ban, said, “We ask that there be no fireworks, firecrackers or similar devices because this will disrupt community peace during a period of religious devotion.”

The Bali police also reminded the public to avoid the consumption of alcoholic beverages on Nyepi Eve or the other holiday’s surrounding the holiday period in order to reduce the risk of violent incidents of criminal activity.

Bali will see a resurgence of colorful Ogoh-ogoh parades on Nyepi Eve this year due to the lifting of bans on this activity in many areas of Bali and government subsidies paid to youth groups who construct the large parade floats.
