Temple festival

Bali, Indonesia

This gathering is a fairly typical honoring at a local temple. There are piles of fruit and food offerings. Tiny umbrellas. Colorful skirts. Incense. Music. And kids running around. This particular one occured in Ubud. Despite the high volume of tourists that Baii sees (and has seen over the past century) these festivals are not displays for tourists, but for thed Balinese, and there are enough happening each week that they don't draw many tourists.
