The Lao New Year is also known as the Water Festival, a celebration shared by some of the people in Yunan Province (China), Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. The Water Festival is celebrated yearly for thousands of years in the month of April.
One of the main events organized yearly during the Lao New Year besides the "Nang Sangkhane Parade", authentic Lao food, and sports tournament is the Lao New Year Beauty Pageant. There were a total of eight beautiful contestants this year.
