Nyepi (The Silence Day)
Nyepi is the most important and sacred Hindu holiday on Bali and is a general public holiday in the rest of Indonesia
The famous ogoh-ogoh parades, where Balinese men (and boys) carry scary creatures of respectable sizes through the streets accompanied by noise and gamelan music is happening on "Nyepi Eve", in the evening.
Tourists and visitors are welcome to watch the parades, take pictures and witness this unique spectacle. Some of these ogoh-ogohs are actually burnt after the parade.
