I was there right after a heavy down pour, some lanterns were dark. They were having a problem with electricity after the rain. Glad it wasn't totally dark :)

Lanterns made of wire frames and cloth, with hand painted outlines.  From regions in Thailand and from other countries: Japan, India, Vietnam,China, Philippines, Malaysia and Korea.

The lanterns were impressively designed, well made, with elaborated details, as u can see from the pictures...aren't they beautiful !!

..also there were food vendors and circus games.
