Hobnob at Ming Muang Grounds

Muang is easily translated to town
Ming on the other hand gets a bit more complicated.
It is doubtful that it has anything to do with a Chinese dynasty centuries ago. 
Google ming muang grounds and you find the name used all over Thailand. 
http://www.thai-language.com/dict/search  has some interesting answers: "
to converse, mingle, mix, blend, combine, intermingle, interweave, join, merge, unite; associate, consort, fraternize, hang about or around, hobnob, rub shoulders (informal), socialize"




Google maps erroneously labels the area a stadium. I have frequently referred to the area as the Municipal grounds. The name is most appropriate. 
Government Office on the map is actually the Sakon Nakhon Immigration office. 
During the Wax Castle Festival there are a variety of contests, performances, displays, eateries, etc.
