The Songkran celebration is rich with symbolic traditions. Mornings begin with merit-making. Visiting local temples and offering food to the Buddhist monks is commonly practiced. As a festival of unity, people who have moved away usually return home to their loved ones and elders. Paying reverence to ancestors is also an important part of Songkran tradition. The holiday is known for its water festival which is mostly celebrated by everyone. Major streets are closed to traffic, and are used as arenas for water fights. Celebrants, young and old, participate in this tradition by splashing water on each other and at last, traditional parades are held and in some venues "Miss Songkran" is crowned where contestants are clothed in traditional Thai dress.
