Yi Peng celebrated with light and sound
Chiang Mai’s Yi Peng (Loy Krathong) Festival drew tens
of thousands of Thai and foreign visitors. One major attraction was the
Light and Sound presentation about the pandas in the front of the Chiang Mai
municipal building. This was similar to the much vaunted show that was seen
during the APEC meeting in Bangkok and covered the Lanna cultural heritage
of the Loy Krathong Festival.
Consulate Cup III
Everybody was ‘having a ball’

The first qualifying match between Trucker Dan and David

unsociable 7 a.m., with Trucker and David winning the best of three sets
4:6, 6:4, 6:2.
