"The beautiful Wax Castle procession subjects to mark and celebrate the end of Buddhist Lent in Sakhon Nakhon, including longboat races, and cultural performances.
Originally, beeswax was molded into different kinds of flowers and attached to the banana tree trunks and offered to the temples. Gradually, the trees were developed into other spectacular shapes; such as, castles, temples, and shrines. These magnificent wax creations are paraded around the city to illustrate the local skill and wisdom.
Visitors can also learn more about the culture of Sakon Nakhon by visiting various temples around the city to observe the making of these structures, and taking this opportunity to visit temples of several highly-revered monks of Thailand. "
