    Default Bun Luang and Phi Ta Khon Festival 2014


    Venue: Dan Sai district, Loei Province


    Phi Ta Khon is a type of masked procession celebrated on the first day of a three-day Buddhist merit making holiday known in Thai as “Boon PraWate”. The annual famous festival takes place on the second or third weekend in Juneat a village of Dan Sai, Loei Province. The festival is held to worship spirits, the protectors of the village, and to ask for plentiful rain for the coming farming season. Phi Ta Khon is paraded by young men who wear huge masks made from carved coconut-tree trunks, topped with wicker work and sticky-rice steamers,and dress as ghosts to parade a sacred Buddha image. The procession is marked by a lot of music and dancing. In addition, on the second day of the festival, the villagers gather at WatPonchai to listen to the messages of the thirteen sermons of Prince Vessandorn recited by the local monks.
