Boat Festival in Luang Prabang - 15th September?

I was wondering if anyone had any more details about this festival?

Will it really be happening on the 15th of September?

Has anyone experienced it before - is it worth changing our itinerary to go there (we wanted to head South first)?

Thank you so much for your help!

Definitely worth seeing. The parade is great with many brightly decorated boats, drummers and costumed performers from the surrounding villages. After the parade finishes at Wat Xieng Thong, there is a gathering at the river nearby, where many people launch a small "boat" of their own
