Photography Corner – Rocket Festival at Wat Doi Ku

This past Saturday, the ATMA SEVA team visited Wat Doi Ku in Doi Saket district for a very unique local festival. The Wat hosted a Rocket festival, where large bamboo rockets about fifty feet in length were shot into the air.  The festival is held to ask for lots of rain for the upcoming planting season.  The rockets are designed and created by different groups and tested against each other for greatest height and how straight the rocket flies.  A similar festival is also held in Issan province in North east Thailand, featuring a grand display of rockets and fireworks. This year the festival drew a large crowd and of course local food and drink carts were there to accommodate. Watching the rockets blast over the peaceful mountain backdrop was quite a sight to see and we hope you enjoy the pictures and video!
