UPDATE :: The parade was at 1 pm, a most unusual time for a parade
If there was a parade today, I missed it. Obviously I was misinformed. I did see a float heading out of town later in the afternoon. Did see three different VIP convoys head toward the lake. Cruised along the waterfront. Parking was at a premium. Security at a maximum.
I'm taking an educated guess here: Dedication of the new wing of the Sakon Nakhon Hospital.
