Songkran Festival at The Slate

You've never seen a water fight as big as this one - a nationwide event celebrating the traditional Thai New Year on April 13th by making sure everyone cools-off during the hottest day of the year!

People celebrate Songkran by throwing water at each other. It is also known as the Water Festival. People believe that water will wash away bad luck. It is also a time to visit family and give gifts.

This Thai traditional New Year begins with early morning merit-making, offering food to Buddhist monks and releasing caged birds to fly freely into the sky.

Paying homage to one’s ancestors is an important part of the day. People will pay their respects to the elders by pouring scented water over the palms of their hands. The elders in return wish the youngsters good luck and prosperity.
