Loi Krathong Parade in Chiang Mai

The 2010 Loi Krathong parade in Chiang Mai held all the pageantry and splendor of ancient Siam!  Beautiful women wearing colorful exotic silk dresses, riding on  illuminated and intricately carved floats brought back another time ..... 

Saturday, Sunday and Monday nights saw the streets of Chiang Mai crowded with people, as the looked on in awe of the marvelous floats, musicians, and dansers, who slowly moved along the main avenue entertaining those who'd come to celebrate Loi Krathong.

The glory that was ancient Siam!

Each of the 3 nights, the three hour parade, slowly made its way through the crowded streets of Chiang Mai.
