Phang Nga –
Phang Nga held farewell rituals at local beaches for the final night of the Vegetarian Festival.
Our previous story:
The ritual started at 10:00 P.M. Tuesday night (October 4th). Many shrines in Phang Nga joined the ritual processions sending the Nine Emperor Gods or ‘Kiu Ong’ at midnight back to heaven.
Hundreds of people joined the event with firecrackers along roads in Phang Nga city. Most of the farewell rituals in Phang Nga were ended at beaches.
Yesterday (October 5th) from 4:00 P.M. onward each shrine held a ceremony to move the ‘Go Teng’ Pole downward which will officially end the festival.
The Phang Nga Vegetarian Festival next year will be from October 15th to October 23rd.
