I'm a travelling mother of one, from the UK but now living in Indonesia. Looking forward to sharing day out ideas with you.
Event: -
Join the people of Sanur as they celebrate the best of Bali
If you're in Sanur during the dates for the village festival, you're in for a treat.

It's a long weekend event celebrating the arts, food, traditions and sport that makes Sanur and Bali special. The aim of the festival is to encourage people to share and enjoy the Indonesian culture. And this year the theme is bamboo-inspired, as bamboo plays an important role in the Balinese day to day life.

The festival is a combination of food bazaars, fashion shows, bands and traditions dances plus lots more. During the week there are also well-attended yoga sessions on the beach and the yearly kite festival. It's even been known for fun runs, cycling races and surfing competitions to take place.

There really is something for everyone. If food is your thing then you're in for a treat. Although you can find the traditional food stalls, burgers, chicken and chips. There's so much more. From 5-star chefs showing off their skills to local restaurant owners serving up their specialities. For art lovers, you'll find not only artwork on display but also Indonesian dance competitions and traditional island dresses on show.

From an environmental point of view, the festival is very active. They hold beach clean-ups, coral planting and educational/information points to help get the 'Green' message across.

And of course, families with younger children won't be disappointed. Kids get there very own section with plenty of rides and games. Last year, my toddler just simply enjoyed the very large open space to walk around and vibe of the welcoming event. There are also some fun beach games, body painting and a turtle release programme scheduled on the 24th of August from 3pm.

And on an evening the entertainment goes into overdrive with singers and bands of all different styles

If you've attended the festival in the past, you'll know a good time is had by all. But I'm happy to say that the theme and line up differs every year so it's well worth another visit.
