Songkran Festival 2013: Thai New Year Celebration in Photos

Songkran, the traditional Thai New Year, was celebrated this past weekend at Wat Phrasriratanaram (890 Lindsay Lane, Florissant; 314-839-3115).

The only Buddist temple in the St. Louis area, Wat Phrasriratanaram is home to a half-dozen monks. For Songkran, local Thai restaurants and families prepare dishes to raise money for the temple. This event is free and open to the public. There is also music, meditation and traditional dancing.
