I can't comment on Songkran in Phuket but in Khao Lak it's as follows, based on my experiences of 2007.

There was a procession from Bang La On down to the beach consisting of hotel, business and tour company 'representatives' in addition to local 'floats' consisting of pick-ups and motorcycles. this was followed by ceremonies, displays and a Miss Songkran competition at the beach. In the evening we attended a dinner and cabaret at The Seaview.

In town during the day there are quite low key water 'sprinkling' activites (there are a few videos on YouTube).

You will find some photographs on the forum at www.mykhaolak.de, www.khaolakforum.de/thread.php…

Hope this helps.
