Rocket Festival Day 1 – The Parade

All 8 villages entered the parade with floats for their king and queen, music, dancers, and a float about their village. The kings were on stallions of course and the queen on a beautiful ornate temple like float. The parade took 3 hours! It proceeded down main street and went all the way to the wat where the kings and queens were presented and each said a little bit about themselves. I was a judge and the ones who spoke English to me got more points…only fair. How else could I judge their intelligence, not by their Thai!

The monkeys!
