Balinese Celebrate Kuningan in Southern California.

Kuningan  is the final day of the Balinese celebration of Galungan, which commemorates the victory of good over evil.
Galungan occurs once in the 210-day cycle of the Balinese calendar, and marks the time of the year when the spirits of the ancestors are believed to visit the earth. Balinese Hindus perform rituals that are meant to welcome and entertain these returning spirits.
This celebration was held at a home in Valencia.
