The dry and windy season is coloured by the kite events on Padanggalak Beach in the town Sanur and other locations. It all started with the local agrarian festival dedicated to thanking gods for the crops and harvests and turned into a range of festivities. There are multiple festivals and competitions held throughout the period, usually between late June until the end of October, with the major ones in the beginning and closing of the kite season. Both local and international kite teams participate in the events, showing traditional and modern kite designs. There is also a monetary prize to compete for, so teams should be highly skilled. The festival is confirmed only if the weather promises to be good, thus, we suggest you to keep it as a last-minute plan, not to get upset in case of cancellation. The closing ceremony of the Bali Kite Festival is planned for the late October, so check the calendar and make sure to be in the right time and place.
