According to the Taninthayi Region government, the Dawei monk’s bowl drifting, which is held every year in Dawei, will be held on the upcoming full moon day.
The festival of setting Dawei traditional monk’s bowl adrift, a long-standing event celebrating Dawei culture, has been held for many years. This year, residents are enthusiastic about participating and working together to make it a well-attended event.
During the meeting of the Steering Committee on organizing the festival on 5 October, U Myat Ko, Chief Minister of the Taninthayi Region government, expressed these sentiments.
The Dawei traditional Monk’s bowl drifting festival is annually celebrated on the full moon day of Thadingyut.
This festival includes the launch of small balloons and various traditional cultural dances, such as dances of setting alms-bowl adrift into water, water pot swaying dance, Thaninthayi dance, the traditional swaying dance of Dawei, and Myanmar traditional drum performances. — ASH/KZW
