THE CANDLE FESTIVAL
The rain retreat is marked by two major religious events : one for the entering of the rainy season called "WAN KHAO PHANSA" (วันเข้าพรรษา) and for the exit of the rainy season called "WAN OK PHANSA" (วันออกพรรษา). The rain retreat season lasts three months.
The wax candle procession ("PHITI HAE PRASAT PEUNG" - พิธีแห่ปราสาทผึ้ง) in Ubon Ratchatani is the most famous wax candle procession in Thailand. There is a night and day parad of huge wax candles.
