Kam Fa Festival: It is a merit-making fair of the people of Thai Phuan in Amphoe Phrom Buri’s Ban Bang Nam Chiao and Muban Phokhaphiwat. It is intended to worship and commemorate the deity who guards the sky and controls the rain to fall seasonally. On the second day of the waxing moon in the third lunar month, which is taken as a preparatory day, villagers will join and make Khao Pun ( rice vermicelli ), Khao Chi ( grilled rice ) and Khao Lam ( sweet sticky rice ) for alms to be offered the next morning. An auspicious ritual performed by Buddhist monks is held in the evening when participating villagers bring sticky rice, eggs and sugar. At night, there is enjoyable entertainment. Late that night, the villagers begin to steam sticky rice and make sweets. On the third day of the waxing moon in the third lunar month which is the Kam Fa Day, the villagers will bring the prepared offerings and food to make merit at the temple. Seven days after the Kam Fa, another half day of the Kam Fa ritual is celebrated and after five more days, food will be offered to the monks. Following this offering, a piece of firewood is brought to float in the river as a ritual to expel the drought. This is done lastly to complete the Kam Fa ceremony.
