Nop Phra Len Phleng
The Nop Phra
Len Phleng Fair is held during the celebrations of Makha
Bucha (around February). A tradition since the times of
Sukhothai, it is described in the inscription stone found at
Nakhon Chum of how processions were organised to pay homage
to the town's major religious sites. The fair today consists
of colorfully decorated parades of participants dressed in
ancient attires crossing the Ping to pay homage to the Holy
Relic on the Nakhon Chum side of the river.
