    Yasothon Rocket Festival 2016

    Hi, myself and a number of my friends were thinking of heading up to the Bun Bang Fai Rocket Festival in Yasothon. A handful of sources say it'll begin on the 6th of May but usually it starts mid-May and from watching Thai football here for half a decade I know how often dates get mis-communicated.

    Is there anyone up in that area that can confirm or who has good experience of the festival and can give some general advice on it? Any info appreciated. Cheers.

    Apparently it's the 13th (middle of the year as usual). I was apparently right to be sceptical of the date.

    06-10 May. Phraya Thaen Park, Mueang Yasothon [and other locales]
    One will find similar celebratory activities [of the same week - give/take a couple days] in Kalasin, Roi Et, Mukdahan, Maha Sarakham, and Sisaket

    Cheers. Where did you get that date? I've seen it on four different sites giving the different weekends for Yasothon. This was one of the sites giving it as the following weekend Thailand Events & Festivals of May

    Call a local hotel. They will know.
    Book a room at the same time.

    If anyone wants to see a really weird rocket festival and fertility festival, same time, head to Na chaluai, Lao land border, Emerald triangle.

    Rocket made to look like dragons, half the men, boys dressed as girls, wooden dolls screwing, and wooden penises everywhere.

    Yes, I can't see any flaw in that plan at all.

    They have that in Bhutan and Japan too, if you like big cocks ;p

    Reminds me of the film "The Rocket":

    Probably the best Thai/Lao film I've ever seen... I should get my parents to watch it sometime, especially given the career I'm in.
