Counting stars at Sakon Nakhon Christmas parade 2017
 

Venue: Ban Ta Rae in Sakon Nakhon

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is inviting local and international tourists to join a joyous festive parade and count glittering stars at the only annual Christmas Star Procession in the country at Ban Ta Rae in Sakon Nakhon, from 21-25 December.

Ban Ta Rae is home to Thailand’s largest Roman Catholic community, which has been celebrating the Christmas star procession annually since 1982 to commemorate the Christmas nativity.

This year’s festivity starts at the 100-year-old Ta Rae community from 21 to 24 December. During this period, the people of the community elaborately decorate their colonial- and Vietnamese-style houses with star-shaped lamps and glittering Christmas trees. The highlight of the event is the traditional Christmas star parade which is unique to Ban Ta Rae. A mass is also held at the community’s cathedral (St Michael’s Cathedral), and visitors can enjoy a city tram tour, a walking street and a traditional Christmas nativity play.

The spectacular Star Procession itself takes place on 25 December from 18.00 Hrs. onwards at The (Roman Catholic) Archdiocese of Thare and Nonseng. Over 200 vehicles will join the procession and these have been brightly decorated by members of the Roman Catholic communities of Sakon Nakhon, Nakhon Phanom, Mukdahan and Kalasin.

Also joining the procession will be traditional Christmas figures; such as, Santa Claus and angels. But the real atmosphere is generated by the thousands of Christian pilgrims and locals who join in the procession with their own glittering star lanterns.
