Halloween Parade?

Midday 31 oct, Khao Lak

Just noticed a parade going up and down Khao Lak city remotely on the webcam. Isn`t technology great.

Its not Halloween parade. Its "Thod Kathin" when monks are presented with new robes after the end (yesterday) of Buddhist lent. Halloween wasn't even heard of in Thailand until fairly recently.

Judging by some of the photos of Halloween parties in Khao lak posted on Facebook, the Thais are certainly embracing the "any reason is a good reason for a party philosophy!"
