The aptly-named Bun Bang Rocket Festival  in the Northeastern province of Yasothon will be staged this year during the weekend of 11-13 May at its traditional venue of Phaya Thaen Park, where once again home-made rockets will be launched one-byone into the air to explode and hopefully promote supernatural assistance with the rice planting season. Known in Thai as Bun Fang Fai , this spectacular annual event has been staged since ancient times, with rockets of around nine metres in length carrying up to 25 kilograms of gunpowder – so big bangs are guaranteed. To go with all the noise there’s colourful processions and celebrations.
