Thailand's Vegetarian Festival is celebrated all around the Khao Lak area. Many of the local community participate in the festival. Towards the end of September 2014 it will be common to see a lot of residents dressed in white, as is customary during the Vegetarian Festival. Around town the Mah Song (devotees who invite the god’s spirits to possess their bodies) will be leading prossessions and calling to bless houses where offerings are made.
The Vegetarian Festival occurs every year in Thailand, beginning on the eve of the 9th lunar month. A spectacular event, noisy, colourful and shocking.
