Tumpek Kandang is a special day filled with dedicated blessings for animals, livestock and pets. Various offerings are made to the Hindu god Rudra for successful farming and animal welfare, aimed at the harmony of the environment and which contribute to human sustenance and happiness. The day is part of a series of other Tumpek days aimed at the blessings of different subjects, namely Tumpek Uduh for plants, Tumpek Landep for metal objects and tools, Tumpek Kuningan for ancestral spirits, Tumpek Wayang for wayang shadow puppets and Tumpek Krulut for traditional gamelan music instruments – all which occur in a 210-day cycle on the Pawukon calendar.
The Bali Beach Run returns in December with a new route, and an emphasis on a ‘Fun Run’ aspect, without the use of timing chips like in its previous years. Runners will leave the starting line at Petitenget Beach at 06:00 sharp, then run southwards along the coast before turning back towards Petitenget, depending on running category. Categories are: 2.5km family run, 5km fun run, and a full 10km run. Now in its third year, Bali Beach Run expects up to 5,000 participants, a large bump from 1,500 in its inaugural year in 2013.
Tumpek Wayang is a special day filled with blessings dedicated towards the traditional performing art form of shadow puppetry. Various offerings are made to the equipment and range of character puppets involved in the traditional theatrical art. Tumpek Wayang is one part in a series of Tumpek days for blessing different subjects. The others include Tumpek Kandang celebrated earlier in January, Tumpek Uduh for plants, Tumpek Landep for metal objects and tools, Tumpek Kuningan for ancestral spirits, and Tumpek Krulut for traditional gamelan music instruments – all which occur in a 210-day cycle on the Pawukon calendar.
