http://www.onemyanmarcommunity.org/SFThingyan2016 - Burmese New Year Water Festival(Thingyan)
Joined the Bay Area Burmese Community for the annual Burmese New Year Water Festival at Kennedy Park in Union City from 10 am to 3 pm on Sunday, May 29, 2016.

Activities included a water play area, fashion show, traditional culture thingyan dance, elderly homage ceremony, and water festival music entertainment as well as traditional food.

The Thingyan Water Festival is celebrated by all major ethnic and religious groups in Myanmar (Burma) and marks the start of the Burmese New Year which occurs in mid-April. Water is symbolic for washing away past sins to start the New Year physically and spiritually purified.

The Bay Area Burmese New Year Festival (Thingyan) promotes cultural diversity and is essential for strengthening democratic values in the San Francisco Bay Area through the development of intercultural awareness.
