Scenes from the Sacramento Phi Mai Lao 2552

This year I had a chance to go the Phi Mai Lao celebration in Sacramento at the Wat Lao on Gerber Road. It was a day trip, but it was a very nice festival in a surprisingly residential area. The compound was spacious, with a quaint creek and friendly faces throughout. The festival didn't really pick up until later in the afternoon, which is a little different from many festivals where the majority of action seems to take place during the day. There isn't space for many vendors and booths, but enough to make it comfortable and a variety of cultural and culinary offerings.
