Udon 125 Year Anniversary

Post by parrot » January 4, 2018, 6:55 pm

Udon will be celebrating its 125th anniversary on Sunday, Jan 7. If you've never seen a fur-ball, I'm sure there'll be one around the statue circle sometime during the 7th.

Like a lot of things in Thailand.....t.i.t.
The city is having a big ceremony in front of the statue circle on the 18th of Jan, from 6AM to 8AM. Lots of monks and all the city's government officials will be there. I'm awaiting word on the light festival at Nongprajak....will post when I get it.

Is it a proper "light show" or just a few fireworks?

Apparently the evening celebration on 19 Jan will include fireworks. A wide variety of activities are scheduled for 18 -20 Jan....at the statue circle on the morning of the 18, and at Nongprajak throughout.

There are videos of this morning's dance activities at the statue circle and at the city pillar.......https://www.facebook.com/udontoday.news/ and https://www.facebook.com/%E0%B8%82%E0%B ... 144210623/ scroll down and you'll see them.

I've always found it interesting that many Udonites, young and old, wai as they pass the statue of Prince Prajak.....much as my father did, religiously, whenever he passed a catholic church.

Light show and fireworks scheduled for Nongprajak
