A wonderful wisdom-filled Songkran celebration

A variety of Otop products from across the country, along with rarely-seen cultural performances will take centre stage during Songkran at Terminal 21 shopping mall, Asok Road, from April 12-18.

Held under the theme “Enjoy Songkran, Pay Respect To Our Local Wisdom”, the week-long festival will feature 50 selected shops that offer valuable products made through painstaking processes.

Highlighted items include sandstone Buddha images from Sa Kaeo; batik fabric from Samut Prakan; accessories featuring rice-grain art from Nonthaburi; earthenware from Koh Kret; Andaman pearls from Satun and Phuket; hand-woven bags from Phangnga; artificial flowers made from Thai clay from Phitsanulok; eggshell art from Samut Prakan; silverware from Chiang Mai; and jewellery and accessories from Chanthaburi.

This is also an opportunity to witness cultural and traditional shows, including a puppet show by the Thai Puppet Museum; a hun lakorn lek, or traditional Thai small-puppets show, by the Joe Louis Theatre; a hun luang, or grand puppet show, by the Thai Royal Puppet Troupe by Surat Jongda; a muay Thai boxing show by the winning teams from the Rak Chart Rak Muay Thai competition; and a khon masked dance by the Akekatan drum-dance troupe. These events will take place on Apr 13-17, at 3pm and 6pm.

There will also be local delicacies from each region, as well as daily demonstrations on how to make a khon mask and puppets, create pottery, carve a grain of rice and paint batik fabric.
