New Year and Dragon & Lion Parade
A festival held every year by local residents of Chinese descent to honor
the Golden deity for his benevolence. A colorful costumed procession makes
its way through the streets of the provincial capital with marching bands,
lion and dragon dances from five nations, and figures of venerated deities.
As straw is a plentiful by-product in rice farming, the local villagers
of Chai Nat create from it, large colorful straw birds representing the
more than 85 species that are found in the Chai Nat Bird Park. The straw
birds are put on show in a fair that also features local handicrafts and
