The following are some pictures of the preparations and some decorations for the festival taken on April 8, 2005.
The Thai Pavilion at LAN Plub Pla Maha Jedsadabodin probably will be used for the grand opening ceremony.
Benches are being installed at a seating area along Thanon Ratchadamnoen Nok for spectators that attend the Songkran Splendours Parade.
(Dancing?) fountains are being installed on Pan Pha Li Lat Bridge.
A traffic lane on Thanon Ratchadamnoe Klang is closed to accommodate (dancing?) fountains.
A Naga fountain at the Democracy Monument viewed from Thanon Ratchadamnoen Klang.
Another Naga fountain on the other side of the monument, viewed from Thanon Dinsor. There are less Nagas on this side.
Even a fire hydrant on Thanon Ratchadamnoen now has a huge faucet ready for the Songkran celebration.
