unknown festival in my village

I still don’t know what specific festival this was but yesterday afternoon we started hearing gongs and drums and then a parade of sorts came past my house on the way to the Buddhist temple. I had thought it was “boy saang long” which also happens during this time of year – that’s when young Thai-yai boys enter the Buddhist monastary for a period of time. But my neighbours told me that this festival was different.

Then there was karaoke singing all night long. Needless to say, Faye and I didn’t get much sleep because of the noise so we were pretty tired today.
