Songkran in Phra Pradaeng

Phra Pradaeng in Samut Prakan Province is one of the few places in Thailand that celebrates the Songkran Festival in the Thai-Mon style, featuring a magnificent parade. Visitors can learn how to play saba, enjoy a Mon folk play, plus many other forms of entertainment, and see a procession of swan and centipede flags. The Phra Pradaeng Songkran Festival differs from others in that it is held a little later than in most other locales. The Songkran rituals and celebrations here are usually held on the Sunday that follows after Songkran Day on 13 April. In 2014, the festival falls on 18-20 April. The big parade is on the last day in the afternoon starting from the municipal offices along the riverfront and goes to Wat Prodket Chettharam.
