Songkhla procession June 2012

I was having breakfast in my friend's house in Songkhla on 28 June 2012 when this procession went past. It lasted more than half an hour and consisted of lots of groups of school and young people, many with their own band.

Later in the morning I saw many of these groups in the grounds of a big school. I wondered if it is part of the 'best school in Thailand' competition.

The photos are not very good as I was looking into the sun and too lazy to go across the road!

The costumes were quite elaborate, but I had no idea what they represented
