A Thai girl shoots a tourist with water gun in Khaosan Road during "Songkran festival" in the left picture. And in the right picture, Thai people dressed up as ghosts on Halloween day. Really this is not a Thai festival, we borrowed it from another country.

During most festivals, Thai people go to the temple to make merit.
Left picture: she is giving food to the monk. This only done in the morning.
Right picture: people let birds go free.

During Buddhist festivals, we go to the temple in the evening to walk around the bot three times in a clockwise direction. We called this "wien tien". In Chonburi province, there is a festival called "Water Buffalo Races" which is held after the rice growing season.
