The festival which traditionally marks the beginning of Buddhist Lent shows the local people’s devotion to Buddhist traditions while allowing them to showcase their renowned candle-carving skills.

The highlight of the much-anticipated events is the parade of beautifully-carved candles and floral floats which takes place on the day of Khao Phansa Day, the starting date for lent when the Monks take to their temples for the rainy season.
