Ubon Candle Festival & Baan Khampun Silk Gallery   July 25th -27th, 2010 

The Thai Textile Society invites you to join in a visit to Ubon Ratchatani to view the exquisite textiles at Baan Kamphun Silk Gallery, which are on public display for only one day a year.

This year it will be on July 26th.  It coincides with the annual Candle Festival that marks the beginning of Buddhist Lent.

Great floats carrying candles in many shapes representing Buddhist themes will be paraded in the main street of Ubon.

We’ll also have the opportunity to visit the National Museum in Ubon, as well as some temples and shops that specialize in local textiles.
