May - BounBangFai Year 2011
This festival is a rain-making and fertility festival. Held just before the rain season, it is a wild and happy ceremony, involving music, dance and street processions, culminating in the firing of rockets. Rockets are fired to tempt the gods to produce rain needed for rice cultivation and also to send the naga from the river bank into the rice field in order to attract rain. This festival is held in Muang nan District.
