Boat Racing festival, Vientiane

This year, Ok Phansa is 4th. October, right?

Does anyone know the dates of the boat racing festival in Vientiane this year, and if the racing on the Nam Ngum river will be on the same dates?

Boat racing festival is 5th of October. You're right that Boun Ork Phansa is 4th. Boat racing festival is always held after 1 day of Boun Ork phansa. The date is different between the boat racing on the Nam Ngum river and Mekong river in Vientiane but the main festival is always held in Vientiane.
