    Boat races + Candles in Sakon Nakhon & Nan

    There seems to be several 'boat race ceremonies' coming up in the 11th Lunar month .. on the Chayo Praya & MeKong + lakes.

    Sakon Nakhon & Nan both have races associated the floating candles. Perhaps the boats try to 'splash out' the candles with their rooster tail. ?

    Me thinks the 11th lunar month is early this year.. mid september.

    Any body been .. or can suggest where long boat racing might be viewed. ??
    as long as there are tests, there will be prayers in public schools.

    A few weeks ago I saw a longboat in a garage forecourt between Nakhon Pranom Airport and the town (on the Mekong) , that was being repainted and smartened up- maybe they do it there - Just a thought .

    Saw the racing in Pnom Pen a couple of years ago - spectacular ( and so was the amount of money the bookies were taking )
