Bo Sang Umbrella Festival 2017

What's Bo Sang Umbrella Festival?

Bo Sang Umbrella Festival is a three-day festival where the streets are filled with laterns and hundreds of umbrellas in Bo Sang Village near Chiang Mai. The legend states that a monk was traveling to Myanmar where he learned how to create Saa paper umbrellas that protected him. He brought this technique to the Bo Sang village where it became an important way to make money. This event has now transformed to a large community even with bands, beauty contest, food festivals, and much more.
