Songkran Festival: Nailed

Advertisements

Songkran Festival is essentially a massive Water Fight in Thailand from April 13-15th. There are 3 basic groups of participants: 1. Pickup trucks loaded with Thai warriors and huge garbage pails of ammo (water) and water guns. 2. Street fighters stationed along Thai roads with buckets of water (sometimes ice water), water guns & hoses. Their main target are the pickup trucks. 3. Pretty much everyone else in Thailand who’s not in a car with the windows closed. No one is safe.

Baby Powder is dispensed liberally as well.
