Under the new integration, the joint team will showcase Songkran holiday celebrations in the metaverse. The water festival is an important event on the Buddhist calendar, marking the start of the traditional Thai New Year. The holiday is celebrated on April 9 every year, but the period may extend from 14 to April 15.
The annual Thai cultural holiday event involves one-of-a-kind experiences such as driving a Tuk-tuk through splashing water, among other activities. While commenting about the new metaverse integration, Tenn Suriyapat, the co-founder of Parapluie, remarked:
“Thanks to The Sandbox for spreading the word about our passion project from Parapluie Studio. We’re bringing traditional festivals to the metaverse. Community and influencers are welcome to join. Let’s make history and create an epic virtual celebration.”
The Sandbox Launches Thainese Cultural-Themed NFTs
The new metaverse adventure will be live on The Sandbox from April 13 to May 13. The joint team has also launched a non-fungible token collection, “Amaze Collection,” showcasing the beauty and flavour of Thai tradition. The new NFT collection is live on The Sandbox NFT marketplace.
