Goes to show there are rednecks having fun all over the world. I bet alcohol is a big
part of the celebration too. :)
Thai beer is very good.

05:30, people holding up a banner while their rocket starts. Why don't we ever see NASA staff do that on their launch pad?

Looks like a very safe sport. Fun!

The Bang Fai Festival in Thailand is on my bucket list for sure. It's essentially a national holiday dedicated to dubiously constructing rockets with Sticky rice and duct tape, and then trying to launch them into orbit without killing everyone within a mile radius. Quite possibly greatest holiday in the world. Seriously, if they just added presents it could rival Christmas in my eyes.
