Rocket Festivals in Isaan 2011

Next on the calendar of events in the region are rocket festivals. The promoted festival is at Yasothon and this year held from the 11th thru the 15th.
I find this festival at Yasothon much like many of the TAT promoted festivals, overcrowded over hot and generally uncomfortable. I suggest people try to find the small ones that go on in the region this time of year. They are generally less crowded much friendlier and easier to handle.
The slideshow shown here was taken some time back at a small village. The people were polite, plenty of shade, cold beverages and plenty of food.
