Celebrate Songkran (Thai New Year) at Wat Thai DC on Sunday, 4/13, from 9am to 3pm.
Vendors from all over the East Coast will be selling delicious Thai food, gifts, clothing, artifacts, etc. Thai music, dancing, kick boxing performances will also be featured. Remember to bring plenty of cash!
Free (but limited) parking is available at Wat Thai, Barrie School.
I recommended parking at Glenmont Metro Station garage and riding the free shuttle buses to Wat Thai. The buses will run every 15 minutes.
Ssuk-san wan songkran! (Happy Songkran Day)
