3 Days of freedom, dancing, Issan music, Morlam sing, street food, and then the rockets! One of the greatest public celebrations in the world. It's real and free
. make the burning man, Glasto and NHG festivals look pathetic
..something for all..

it is something between NASA and Civil War :)
Absolutely amazing how big those rockets are and how high the fly. It is far from Bangkok, but if you are around it is really worth to see.

Truly a spectator sport. Mix and mingle with all the teams during the event, even bet on them. Heart pounding adrenaline not knowing if the rockets will launch, explode or fly into the crowds. Earplugs are a must as the noise rivals a jet engine.

Plenty of activities to keep you busy for at least 3 days. Friday and Saturday, parades and music. Sunday, the rockets all day. Rest of the time you can eat and see the local sites.

This festival is unique for 5th thai lunar month merit making for requesting the angels for raining in the preparation of cultivating season. There are a lot of fun activities from pageants of thai Esarn rockets with local costumes procession in the main road to public park, Paya Thaen park in the city. Highlight is the last day of the festival , usually sunday , when the rockets are ignited to compete for which one soars to the highest altitude. Books and stays in the hotel near the public park, near yasothorn bus terminal , it's the best spot to watch the procession.
