A ceremony was held in front of the white chedi (in front of the municipality by the Ping River) earlier this morning, presided over by Mayor Assanee Buranupakorn. The purpose was to ask for pardon for any transgressions against the river over the past year and for blessings for the year to come.

This event marks the first activity of the upcoming Loy Krathong (Yi Peng) ceremony tomorrow. The official kickoff of the festival will be held this evening at Tha Pae Gate at 6pm.
