These are our good friends in Thukhuma Khayethe, Nyan (left) and Thila (right) getting ready for a show they donated to a local old folks home. Notice that Thila is wearing a traditional longyi, or rather a traditional clown longyi. You would know this because the pattern of the cloth, while perhaps appropriate for the Scottish Bagpipe Infantry, is really only appropriate for a Burmese table cloth - or a clown.
This is pretty much all you need to know about the Water Festival, whose proper Burmese name is Thingyan. Basically, sponsors (especially booze companies) build these reviewer stands / dance floors all around town for young people, especially young men, to fire water hoses and cannons at Toyota pick-ups filled with more youth, especially young men, who consider it a fun blessing to be doused in water. The pickups will stop for a minute or two to be sure their passengers are thoroughly soaked. They will line up at the bigger, more famous stands and wait their turn for the soaking.
