My recent trip to Bangkok to visit my family was so timely. I arrived just in time to see the 'festival of lights' celebration at the school where my sister works. The festivities include ceremony, games and of course food fair! Faculty, staff, students and their parents wore a Thai traditional costume to mark the occasion. Here are the highlights of this year's Loy Krathong Festival at Niva International School.
Parents joined in the fun. They were responsible for most of the food sold at the fair!

The stall where mango sticky rice was sold was visited by many. I didn't wait long enough to get myself a nice treat.
