The second and third days of the Vegetarian Festival street procession was held by the Sapam Shrine, the Lim Hu Tai Su Shrine, and the Bang Koo Shrine in Koh Kaew.
Our previous story:
Yesterday (September 28th) was the second day of the vegetarian street procession and was held by the Sapam Shrine and the Bang Koo Shrine in Koh Kaew, Mueang Phuket district.
The processions yesterday morning were heading to Saphan Hin Public Park in Phuket Town before heading back to the shrines.
Today the procession was held by the Lim Hu Tai Su Shrine (Samkong Shrine) in Phuket Town.
A “street procession” is conducted every day by every shrine during the festival. The procession offers an opportunity for householders and the general public along the streets to receive the blessing of gods that locals believe are possessing the spirit mediums.
The parades and processions were canceled in 2021 due to Covid-19 concerns and under strict Covid-19 rules in 2020 making this year the first full Vegetarian Festival since 2019.
