    Rocket festival

    Hi,
    Does anyone know about any rocket festivals in June? I know of one in Lansak, near Uthai Thani on 28th June. I cant make that one and am looking for one on the weekend of the 14th. I hear there some in the surrounding areas on different weekends.
    Thanks.

    I missed the rockets in 2014 but trying again in 2016.
    I think it's on the weekend of 25th and 26th June.

    And you missed them in 2015 as the government banned them. Hence why we didn't get any rains. They'll probably ban them this year also. We have to wait and see.

    2015 rockets

    The festival I'm referring to was definitely on in 2015. I left town a couple of days before it started. I was told this year it may not be on due to local funding. I expect it will go ahead in some form.

    Whether it was or wasn't on I can't confirm but I believe there was a blanket ban in 2015. It certainly never happened around where I live.
