Boun Bang Fai Laos 2011

Boun Bang Fai or Rocket Festival is celebrated towards the end of the dry season in May. Rockets are launched into the heavens to appease the rain spirits in the hope of bringing on the rains during wet season and a bountiful harvest.

These images were taken in Phonmouang, 30 kilometres north of Vientiane. Many happy, drunk people, and a lot of gunpowder.
