The First Day of the Pamkit Festival

The 1st of December is the first official day of the annual Pamkit Festival at Thung Sri Mueang in central Udon. Parking was a real 'mare, but we managed to find a spot eventually. We were there to witness the dragon parade, and then strolled around the stalls to see what was on offer.

The multicoloured dragons are getting set for the parade.
