This is an annual festival that takes place on the full moon in May or June. This year it is on 1st May 2015. It takes place in Non-salao village, Phukiao district of Chaiyaphum province. It is an old tradition where the young men of the village have to show their real intent of becoming a monk. They take part in a parade where they are held high on a large wooden stretcher. This is then shaken violently to see if they can hang on. If they fall off, they cannot become a monk. But to hold on is not easy as the parade route is 3 kms long. The hair shaving is at 7am and the parade is at 2pm.
