Information about Phra Pradaeng Songkran Festival

Phra Pradaeng Municipality in Samut Prakan Province near Bangkok hosts every year a more traditional Songkran festival the weekend following the official dates (13-15 April). During the three-day festival, visitors will be able to see and participate in traditional Thai children's games that almost all Thais played when they were young, attend shows and a demonstration of the manufacture of traditional sweets called ''Kalamae'' or Thai caramels.

On the last day, the event ends with a day of merit, a procession through the city, pouring water on the Buddha statues and paying respected to elders, releasing birds and fishes in the nature, as a good start for the new Thai year that begins.
