Then I went over to The Fremont Street Experience Neonopolis where the Songkran Las Vegas festival was being held. Here is some basic info:
"Songkran is for many Nations. Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Burma, Sri Lanka, Yunnan and more.
Deriving from the Sanskrit language, the word Songkran means to pass or to move into. In this context, the meaning implies the passing and the moving of the sun, the moon and the other planets into one of the zodiacal orbits.The Grand Songkran Festival which falls in Aries indicates the new era of the Thai New Year.
Thai people will find time to perform their annual rites of showing respect to their ancestors. Thais pay respect to their elders by sprinkling their hands with scented water.
The most famous aspect of the Songkran celebrations is the throwing of water. The custom originates from spring cleaning aspect of Songkran. Part of the ritual was the cleaning of images of Buddha. Using the 'blessed' water that cleaned the images to soak other people is seen as a way of paying respect and bring good fortune.
