Saturday 15 April

Songkran Festival | Perth

Join the team at Long Chim to celebrate Thai New Year the right way—with Thai street food! Oh and some water activities too. In Thailand, it was traditionally customary for people to trickle a bit of water over a Buddha statue to wash away sins from the past year and all that jazz. These days it has become a huge water fight with major streets throughout Thailand being closed down to accommodate the fun. Long Chim is getting on board with the water activities so get down for some fun, and maybe avoid wearing white.

Where: Long Chim, Perth
When: Saturday 15 April,12pm—6pm
