The Songkarn Festival – Thai New Year – Water Festival
April 9 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm
On Sunday, April 9, 2017 we celebrate the Songkarn Festival. You may know it by one of its “nicknames” – Thai New Year or the Water Festival.
It is a Thai tradition to give Alms offering to Monks. And in turn, you offer this good deed to relatives who passed away by wishing for them by pouring a small glass of water on a big tree and it is a very good deed and good luck for the beginning of a New Year.
This year, as in earlier years there will be a ceremony of sprinkling the Buddha statues and Monks with flower pedals & perfumed water., and, of course, the congregation will also sprinkle perfumed water on each other for good luck and good health and a prosperous New Year.
There will be Thai Vegetable and Thai food available.
