Songkran comes to a close for another year

Songkran comes to a close for another year

PATTAYA:--After 9 days of water throwing fun for many, madness for others, the annual festivities come to a close today and tomorrow.

 

Today, April 19, is the final day of Pattaya’s Songkran celebrations. It begins with official ceremonies at Chaimongkol Temple. Alms offerings is set for 7:30 a.m. with the elderly blessing ceremony at 8:30 a.m. and a cultural show kicking off at 9 a.m. featuring dancing and traditional games.

 

Pattaya’s Songkran parade sets off at noon along Second Road, Central Road and back along Beach Road to Bali Hai Pier before returning to the temple.

 

Of course, the entire route will be inundated with water as Songkran draws to a close. Pattaya officials reminded revelers that powder and chalk is not permitted, nor are high-power water guns. Water-throwing should stop at 6 p.m.

 

Tomorrow, April 20, the Rice Festival in Naklua, with no water throwing, officially brings the mid-April events to a close.

Comes to a close today and tomorrow?? Which one? So that makes it what 10 days? Absolutely ridiculous should be 2 days no more

19th is the final and peak day in Pattaya.

But sure there may be some clueless tourist morons still attacking people over the weekend.

I've never seen that happen before after the peak day in Pattaya though.

Good riddance Songkran, don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out.

You're in the north right? Is it as crazy up there? Other posters tell us that up there it only lasts briefly.
