Rocket Festival Season Arrives in Northeast Thailand
The Rocket festivals take place to encourage the rains to return to the region. Thailand is a multi cultural country and different areas have different traditions. northeast Thailand, Isaan, probably leads the country in diversity. They seem to be running through May this year. Plenty of parades, and gambling and drinking takes place in villages throughout the region. I am trying to get some place names and dates and will pass them on if I find any.
