Don Chedi Memorial and Suphan Buri Red Cross Fair 2018
 

Suphan Buri province is holding its annual major event, Don Chedi Memorial and Suphan Buri Red Cross Fair, from 18 January to 1 February 2018 at the Don Chedi Monument in Don Chedi district.

The 15-day event is organised to commemorate the glorious victory of King Naresuan the Great over the Burmese forces. History has it that in January 1592, King Naresuan the Great of Siam defeated Phra Maha Upparacha, the Burmese Crown Prince, in a royal duel on elephant’s back; as a result, the Siamese kingdom regained its sovereignty from the occupation of Burma.

The Don Chedi Monument comprises two sites, a royal monument in honour of Siamese victory and a pagoda (Chedi) enshrining relics. The Royal Thai Army renovated the pagoda in 1952, building a new 66-metre high and 36-meter wide structure over the ancient one. The statues of King Naresuan the Great and his elder sister Phra Suphankanlaya are also located in the compound.

Highlight is the light-and-sound and multimedia mock-up war on elephant’s back, with a total of 10 shows throughout the two-week long event. Showtime are from 18 to 31 January (except 22-24 and 29 January), from 19.00-20.15 Hrs. Ticket is 100 Baht, and can be bought at the event.

Other interesting shows and activities are musical performances, Khon masked dance, and a number of contests and competitions, including Suphan Buri accent speech, country singer, popular singer, and beauty pageant.

Held concurrently, the Suphan Buri Red Cross Fair 2018 offers visitors the chance to enjoy local Suphan Buri food and desserts, including Thai crispy pancake, Pad Thai and Herbal drink as well as bargained items, ranging from cloths to furniture. There are also game tents including balloon darts game, bingo and more.
