Thai New Year, known as Songkran, was celebrated on Sunday with traditional Thai costumes, food, music and dancing at Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep USA Buddhist temple in Chino Hills.
Songkran is a national holiday in Thailand and takes place on April 13 each year, but is celebrated until April 15.
Songkran is the most important event on the Buddhist calendar. The Water Festival marks the start of the traditional New Year.
The name Songkran comes from a Sanskrit word meaning “to pass” or “to approach”.
