Tourists want to know
Should we come, or not
There is a one year moratorium on many public events due to HRH's death on 13 October 2016, lasting until late October.  Royal funerals usually last seven days
Some events had been cancelled, others 'subdued.'  Most religious and sport functions are allowed.

What happens 
in October in Sakon Nakhon??? 

The Royal Longboat Races and the Wax Castle Festival generally happen  days before the October full Moon.  This year that's October 5th.
The Royal Longboat Races are a sport activity. The Wax Castle Festival has mostly religious significance

At this time I am in search of information and hope to have some answers soon
