Pasola Jousting Festival 2014

Held on 01 February at Lamboya and 21 February at Wanukaka

This is a most exciting Jousting Festival where opposing teams run into each other on horseback, saddle-less, throwing blunt spears - called hola - to each other to unseat or hurt their opponents or horses. Fallen men or horses may not be attacked, but any blood flowing is believed to fertilize the soil and benefit the next harvest.

This year, the most thrilling annual traditional war game will yet again highlight Sumba Island, East Nusa Tenggara, where the breath-taking Pasola Jousting Festival gets underway on 01 February and on 21 March 2014.
