VIDEO : Songkran Thai New Year Water Festival – Chiang Mai, Thailand

I spent most of the day yesterday running around with my camera filming for my client in the battle field … of the biggest water fight in the world!

Thailand New Year (known in Thai as “Songkran”) started early at 6 for the official monks receiving alms ceremony and then I was into the crazy cross fire of the semi automatic water weapons, loaded with icy cold water aswell as warm dirty moat water well into the afternoon.

The buddha procession joined later in the day, keeping the culture and traditions strong. Please see the videos below (first is my full length edit for maximum action, in the middle are some behind the scenes shots and second video is the cut down edit for client).
