Photographer's Note

Loi Krathong participants march down the street during opening ceremonies og the annual Loi Krathong Festival in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Loi Krathong is an event that happens every year on the full moon of the 12th lunar month (first full moon of November).

The event runs three days and is marked by folks floating lanterns, a large parade, a Miss Loi Krathong contest, and hot air balloon launch.

The festival is held all over Thailand, but the two most famous locations are Chiang Mai and Sukothai.
