Story Behind the Image | Bun Bang Fai Paradee

The biggest celebration of Bun Bang Fai is in Yasothon, Thailand.

“Unsaid things can be said.”

One highlight of the wild, unique Bun Bang Fai Parade is launching rockets (made of bamboo and packed with gunpowder) as an act of fertility offerings for the upcoming rainy season. During the final days before the last rockets are fired “unsaid things can be said.”  Wild costumes and dancing is not only normal but expected.

Throughout the days leading up to the final event, surrounding villages in the provinces arrive to put on dance performances which are unique to each village.
