This festival held in the provincial capital in the middle of April every year since 1932, is primarily a Buddhist religious celebration and visitors interested in absorbing local culture will find it more interesting, if somewhat less exuberant, than the Pattaya festival which is also held each April. A procession honoring the Phra Puttha Sihing Buddha image is the featured event, and there are also folk games, classical Thai dancing and cultural performances.
