Thai Food Fair and Water Festival at Wat Dhammadharo Thai Temple
Thai New Year (called Songkran Water Festival) is the most important annual festival for the Thai people. The Festival comprises of a Thai Food Fair, cultural and open house activities. Proceeds from the event go towards supporting the building project of Wat Dhammadharo Thai temple as a place for Buddhist education, culture and language for Thai and Australian communities. Peter and I visited the temple today for the event and here is a postcard vignette from our day out.
