Wat Thai festival for Song Kran this year?

Is the temple going to have any festivities this year? So sad they no longer have those booths every weekend...

      Thanks for this-- I remember she was at King Seafood Supermarket for a while, but by the time I got there, she was gone.

        You can still get some of the food. One papaya salad lady is in New King Seafood market, the other (with the grilled meats) has a stall in the back of the Fiesta Super Mall next to El Super on Sherman Way.

          I've been to both of those markets on a weekend a few months ago and saw neither of them. How recent is your info? Was the papaya salad lady by that food vendor corner in the front, across from the cash registers?

            My info on New King is several months old. My info on the La Fiesta Super Mall is two weeks old. It's a permanent food court storefront marked "CHINESE FOOD", but with the old standbys on the menu above the kitchen. It's next door to La Perla del PacĂ­fico, which also deserves love and respect, and two doors down from Metro Balderas.

    2. Yes they do every year. it is April 10-11, 2010 from 9am-6pm on their poster but 8:30am-5:30pm on the schedule. See ya there!

        Hm, the food court is not mentioned on the list of events.... does anyone know if any of the vendors will be back?

          If you click on my first link and scroll down to the poster for the festival it does say "Taste perfect Thai food"
          Alright, I'll make it even easier, here is a link to the poster:
