Thailand: Tradition sees massive homemade rockets launched into the sky

Giant homemade rockets in various shapes and sizes were launched from the Phaya Thaen park in the Yasothon Province on Sunday, as part of the traditional Bun Bang Fai Rocket Festival.

During the yearly event, the rockets are paraded before crowds and then launched as a gesture to the Buddhist deities in hopes of having a rainy season.

There is also a competition during the event in which participants try to launch rockets higher or farther than others.
