Bali is readying things for its upcoming PechaKucha Night Vol. 6, set to take place August 6 as part of the Sanur Village Festival. We've included some details about the festival, sent to us from PKN Bali organizer Arief Budiman.
Sanur Village Festival set for August 4 – 8, 2010 taking place at Segara Ayu beach and Inna Grand Bali Beach Sanur. “Saha Nuhur” is preferred for this year’s theme of the festival that literally means “the passion to visit a holy place” and later become the name of “Sanur”. With its popularity we believe that Sanur Village Festival will attract more visitors to the island of Bali this year and more importantly to map this event in the world of tourism calendar.
This year, Sanur Village Festival agenda are classic highlights of Bazaar & Food Festival, Jazz Festival, and 6th Sanur Golf Tournament as well as our most anticipated Street Parade. The International Kite Festival and Jukung Festival would definitely sensate the spectators with their artistic creations and breathtaking races. There will be another rejuvenate of our program, with the relocation of our Mass Yoga program to a serene Yoga Village.
