The most clear festival of Songkran is the tossing of water upon others. Thais meander the boulevards with holders of water or water firearms. What's more, numerous Thais will have little dishes of beige hued talc sold efficiently and blended with water which is then spread on the countenances and figures of irregular passersby as a gift for the new year. Frequently this talc is blended with menthol. City authorities close off numerous segments of the road avenues for the celebration prohibiting all vehicular activity put something aside for ice trucks and fire motors which likewise share in the watering celebrations.
