Songkran Festival celebrating Thai New Year - this Sunday!

Why go to Thailand to celebrate New Year's Day when you can celebrate it right here in Los Angeles? Our city is home to the largest Thai community outside of Thailand and on Sunday, April 5, you can join the 6th annual Songkran festivities on Hollywood Boulevard between Western and Vermont. The fun begins at 10 a.m. and goes until 7 p.m., and will include traditional folk dances, costume competitions, water ceremonies, and live music.

Come hungry! The 2nd Annual International Curry Festival runs concurrently with the Songkran Festival and will feature delicious Thai dishes as well as dishes from Kenya, Jamaica, Japan, India, and Indonesia.
