Kuta Karnival Cancelled

Local Organizers Decide Time is Not Right for 4th Kuta Karnival in 2006.

(2/28/2006) The The Kuta Small Business Association (KSBA) have announced that the fourth Kuta Karnival will not be held in 2006. The KSBA made public their decision on Tuesday, January 17, 2006, following a meeting of its directors and members in Kuta.

The Chairman of the KSBA, I Madè Supatra Karang, was quoted in the Indonesian-language DenPost as saying that 2006 would not see the hosting of the popular street festival in Kuta due to security concerns. However, the Chairman of the KSBA was quick to add that their decision did not reflect a lack of faith in the ongoinbg efforts of security forces in Bali and measures now being put in place to enhance security on the Island. Rather, according to Karang, the decision to temporarily postpone the event reflects the organizer's unwillingness to take the risk of holiding a large scale, widely dispersed week-long celebration of food, music, night-life and shopping at this time.
