Getting Ready for the Boat Races in Sakon Nakhon, Thailand

As the end of Pansaa approaches here in Sakon Nakhon folks get ready for the Wax Castle Procession and the Boat Races. For years now I have watched the Boat reaces at various towns along the Mekhong River and this looks to be my first inland celebration. For anoher good look around town and more visit sakonnakhon-live, Hans has been in Sakon Nakhon for years.
We got to Somdet Phra Srinakarindra Park about 1630h to find folks enjoying an early evening cool breeze and Thais in the Millinery.
I was amazed to see such little action, 1 Boat that seems to have been deserted and 1 boat that might be the Sakon Nakhon Hospital entry in the races out prcticing. A stroll around the waterfront was enjoyable thought so here you go.
