Rocket Festival "Boun Bang Fai"

This festival is a rain-making and fertility festival. Held just before the rainy 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; they are also fired to send the naga from the river into the rice field in order to attract rain. This festival is held in Muang Nan District.
