Songkran water festival – Thai New Year – looks brights, unusual and attractive for foreigners because of its traditions and the way of celebration. Already on April 12 in the evening people start preparations: put big buckets near their houses, shops, restaurants. In the morning these buckets will be full of cold water, Thai rhythmic music will start playing, Thai people will wear bright shirts, everywhere you will see people dancing and getting ready for the water fight. Streets are full of pickups and trucks with buckets and people holding water guns. This way the island is consumed with fun and by the afternoon there will be a big water festival accompanied by music, water fights and happy people.
Kids clubs arrange their own versions of a water festival for little tourists and Phuket residents.
Every year Rawai Park – kids park in the south of Phuket – makes a family event for Songkran. This year it lasted 4 days from 12 till 15 of April.
Park decorations – tiger, rainbow and colorful flags – together with music stirred up people’s interest a week before Songkran.
Rawai Park was open to everyone – families and big companies. At the entrance guests were welcomed by Thai wearing traditional golden dresses.
Park arranged kids activities, games with prizes and entertainers, tiger mascot and cartoon heroes. The event began at 9 am and finished at 7 pm. Foam party and bubbles in the swimming-pool repeated many times what made children and their parents absolutely happy.
There was a competition in the pool in which children and parents could take part. Everyone was happy – fun and prizes.
