Members of Wat Punyawanaram, Melbourne, Florida's Thai Buddhist Temple, gathered today to celebrate Songkran/Water Fest 2019. Officially known as Songkran, the Thai water festival is about cleaning, purification, and having a fresh start. Houses are cleaned; Buddha statues are carried through the streets in a procession to be washed with flower-scented water. Elders are honored by respectfully pouring water over their hands. As formal processions and formalities end, members danced and throw water in good-natured fun.
