Um Pra Dam Nam festival is annually held on the 15th day of the waning moon in the 10th lunar month during Sat Thai Period at Wat Trai Pum. The ceremony starts at 1pm. The image is carried around the town, so Buddhists can pay respect to it and stick gold leaf on its body. The next morning, people make merit as it is Sat Thai Day. Food, including Krayasat, and other necessities are given to monks. The Buddha image is then taken to be immersed in the Pah Sak River by governor of Phetchabun. After the ceremony, the water in the river is regarded as sacred. As a result, people swim in it or take the water to drink before the boat racing begins.
