Badung government banned the parade of ogoh-ogoh in Badung

Ogoh-ogoh parade conducted every year by the people of Bali. Ogoh-ogoh are made by young people of Bali to welcome Nyepi day. Nyepi this year will take place on March 31, 2014, and ogoh-ogoh parade will take place on March 30, 2014.

Badung regency government banned the parade of ogoh-ogoh 2014. The government banned the parade held throughout the Badung regency. This prohibition conveyed the reasons for maintaining social stability and security. Because on April 4, 2014 will be held parliamentary elections. Government intending to avoid political conflicts between different people who have the support of the parliamentary candidates.

Ogoh-ogoh parade ban in 2014 would upset the young men who had been looking forward to since last year. For ogoh-ogoh parade is held every year and is always greeted with delight by the citizens. Citizens who have prepared everything to make ogoh-ogoh definitely feel disappointed. The children will also feel disappointed with this decision.

If ogoh-ogoh are prohibited throughout Bali for political reasons, it would be ridiculous. Therefore, ogoh-ogoh parade has become a tradition that is fun for people of Bali. Every moment of the year is always awaited by the youth and children. Without ogoh-ogoh, Nyepi day will be less memorable. Tradition is always done by all the people of Bali.

Travelers who want to see the parade of ogoh-ogoh 2014 in Badung had to change his plan. Foreign tourists should see a parade of ogoh-ogoh in Ubud or Denpasar area. Until now in Denpasar and Gianyar government has not issued a ban on the parade for its citizens.
