Official description

Visitors to Seacon Square will get the chance to relive the legends of Bang Rachan village during the Ayutthaya period at the Bang Rachan fair from Aug 12-23. Fountain Court will be transformed into the Bang Rachan village during peaceful times before the villagers headed to battle against Burmese invaders. Their stories will be presented in a living museum format, with life-sized figures of the heroes such as Nai Phan Ruang, Nai Chan Nuad Khiew, Nai Thong Men, Khun Sun and Nai Dok on display.

The Bang Rachan atmosphere will be intensely reinforced with replicas of the observation tower, cannon foundry, cannons, rice barns, carts, straw bales and even fighting roosters. Visitors will also witness replicas of historical locations like Wat Pho Kao Ton Hall where the villagers gathered before the battles and the sacred well where the holy water was made to boost their fighting spirit.

Residents of Sing Buri, where Bang Rachan village is situated, will don period costumes, while some will even play as the Bang Rachan heroes themselves.

The fair will feature 60 shops offering herbal medicines, wickerwork, Thai swords, brassware, silverware and cotton fabrics. Traditional desserts and foods will also be served.

Some shops will demonstrate how to make pottery and swords.

There will also be a live sword fighting show on Aug 12-13, 15-16 and 21-23, twice a day at 2pm and 5pm.
