New Year in the Park is a community organized event that celebrates Cambodian, Laos, Thai, and Burmese New Year traditions. The traditional three day festival is the largest and most important event within these cultures, and usually falls around mid-April, according to the ancient Hindu calendar. Its significance marks the end of the harvest season, when farmers enjoy the fruits of their labor before the monsoon season.
