Heavy Storm Halts Naga Fireball Festival in Nong Khai

Nong Khai—

At 4:30 PM, on October 30th, 2023, at the Naga Fireball Festival, Mekong River, Nong Khai, a heavy storm caused bamboo naga structures to fall apart. Nobody was harmed as the event had not yet started.

The strong gales and heavy rains that lasted more than 30 minutes caused the event to be put on hold for the day. The stalls and tents were blown away while many merchants attempted to collect their belongings to safety hurriedly.

The Bun Bang Fai Festival or Naga Fireball World Festival was held after the End of Buddhist Lent Day (Ok Punsa).

However, the Bun Bang Fai Rocket Festival, Mueang Nong Khai, Nong Khai, will last until November 1st, 2023, and has many booths and activities such as street food stalls, beauty pageants, and more vivid local activities.
