Dates confirmed for Nan boat racing festival

The annual Nan Boat Races are set to be held during 20-21 September and 24-26 October, 2014 along the scenic Nan River.
Organizers say the boat racing festival will attract some 200 boats from over 100 communities, with each vessel accommodating up to 60 oarsmen and all dressed in the same racing team’s uniform.
History has it that the Nan Boat Races were initially organized during the local community’s robe presentation to the monks to mark the end of the Buddhist Lent. To-date, the event has become a fixture on both Nan’s and Thailand’s annual festival calendar that attracts thousands of spectators, both Thai and foreigners, and is normally held during September and October each year.
TAT Governor Thawatchai Arunyik commented: “TAT joins the people of Nan in conserving this unique and charming Thai-Lanna tradition. This event has been the pride of Nan for generations and is set to be heritage for more generations to come. Local and international visitors should not miss the chance to witness this annual spectacle on the Nan River, where colourfully-painted boats made from whole tree trunks adorned with an elaborately-crafted naga head at the prow will be brought out just once a year for this important cultural and sporting event.”
Along with the boat racing there will also be a fair with booths selling food and drinks, souvenirs and local arts and crafts indigenous to Nan province.
