Festival mixes sacred and secular

Siam Paragon will present both sacred and recreational activities at the "Siam Paragon Songkran Wonderland 2017", which takes place tomorrow and runs until Sunday.

Nine sacred ancient Buddha statues will be enshrined at the Hall of Fame on the M floor for visitors to pay respect to. One of them is a replica of Phra Buddha Sihing and the others are of different postures. All of them are on loan from the Bangkok National Museum.

Visitors are invited to pour water on birthday Buddha images for blessings and learn about the ritual of bathing the Buddha statues in each region in an exhibition where a large-size replica of this year's Songkran goddess, Kirinee Devi, will be displayed. There will also be daily demonstrations on how to make nam ob (Thai perfume) and bu-nga (scented dry flowers).

Another highlight is a loincloth fashion show by Thai designers Adhoc, Good Mixer, Iconic, Lalalove, Painkiller, P.Mith, Q Design And Play, Rotsaniyom White Label, Theatre and Tube Gallery. The creations will be presented by Korean models tomorrow at 5pm.

At Parc Paragon, there will be a food festival where creative food trucks will be serving a variety of dishes daily from 4-10pm. This is an opportunity to indulge in stewed pork leg with noodles from Ko Muai Noodle, spicy chicken salad with sticky rice from Yum Kai Waan, cheesy chicken from Chickacheese, coconut from Lamai Coconut, mango smoothies from Manhattan Mango, ice cream from Sakura Soft Serve and soda beverage and smoothies from Gravity Popup.

There, many chic summer items will be available for purchase and several contemporary bands and artists will play a mini concert daily from 5-8pm. The line-up includes Apichart Pak Waan, Kor Phai Ensemble, Civilize, iHear Band, DJ Joox, Sawasdee, The Paradise Bangkok Molam International, Bangkok Wak Up, Sabai and Keng The Voice.
