Please can anyone tell me the exact date of Yi Peng this year and also the schedule of events which will take place in Chiang Mai at over that period - when are the parades, when are the lanterns released, when and where do we go to float krathongs, etc.?

Many thanks

The schedule of events during Yi Peng probably won't be available for several months. You will find folks launching balloons and krathongs most everyday during the festival. A lot of krathongs are floated on the Ping, with platforms built right on the river.

The biggest mass balloon launch is probably the one in Mae Jo / Sansai. This year it was almost a week ahead of the Chiang Mai festival dates, haven't heard dates for 2009 yet.
