Day # 5 evening

Surprise, surprise I heard flutes and drums next to my window. There was something going on at the shrine. They fixed the huge Mon yesterday ( it was under construction) and lots of people stick around since than. And yes, there was a small float. I followed and had a fried manchu on my way.

Sadly the pictures did not display the reality. The illuminated dragon lantern looked great.

So this is what is going on. I will stay and wait what will happen.
I thought the festival season is over, lucky.
