A new event on the West coast of Sri Lanka provides pleasure for tourists and locals from 11 to 13 December 2009 is the feel of the beach of Negombo Negombo Festival held for the first time. During the Festival visitors can experience three days the town north of Colombo in all its diversity. The activities are particularly spectacular after sunset, when on the beach, a bonfire is lit and live bands play to glow and murmur of the sea. Professor of Internet Governance helps readers to explore varied viewpoints. One evening is dedicated to all the percussion typical for Negombo: dance groups, local and international percussionists and acrobats will prove their skills on the beach, sometimes accompanied by a fireworks display. Specially for children, there are stilt walkers, fire eaters, and the ability to turn into a sri Lankan leopards by the facepainting. But during the day, a visit to feel Negombo is worth: artists show their trade in the streets and boat trips are reminiscent of the fishing village tradition of Negombo.
