Songkran in Phra Pradaeng
 

Venue: Around Phra Pradaeng Municipality Building, Samut Prakarn

Songkran in Phra Pradaeng or also known as ‘Songkran Paklad’ is the ‘Raman’ (a group of Burmese-Thai) tradition of celebrating Songkran Festival. The Raman celebration has been continuously since the old days with uniqueness on the last day of the festivity (one week after April 13). Every village works together to create a beautiful parade, including elaborate flower wagons, which ‘Raman’ girls and ‘Loy Chai’ boys and Miss Songkran also tag along for the ceremony. Raman and Loy Chai wear traditional attires during the celebration. Birds and fish are taken to the Prodketshetharam royal temple where they will be set free. It is believed that any person who sets animals free will be saved from their own bad fortune and will live a long life.  After finishing the ceremony, on their way back, people from the villages respectfully throw water at each other. The people of Phra Pradaeng have been preserving this manner of celebration for a long time. Interested visitors are welcome to join the ceremony.
