When the times changed, the traditional ‘Yi Peng’ ceremony of the Lanna people began to fade away. PaTa Obasan, who first established the Kad Mua street market and has been deeply immersed in the Lanna culture for a long time, decided to organize ‘The Heaven Lantern 2023’ festival to showcase the beauty of Lanna culture. Within the festival, Pata arranged activities that depict the original customs and traditions to allow people from all over the world to experience the beauty and uniqueness of this cultural heritage.

Inside the event, there will be the forest gates and candlelit pavilions, which symbolize the belief of the Lanna people that they are welcoming the deity Phra Wetsandon when leaving the forest and entering the city. It is believed that passing through these gates will bring blessings into one’s life. Kad Mua, a concept inspired by the ancient pedestrian streets and the traditional way of life of ethnic communities, allowing everyone to witness the way of life from the past, wacth various traditional crafts demonstrations, and join workshops that provide a close experience of the beauty of Lanna cultural arts.
