Lao National Day Sunday 2 December 2012 - what happens?

I will be in Vientiane on Saturday/Sunday 1/2 December 2012. I know that the banks will be closed on both days but are there parades or evants to see.

Are guest houses full?

In other words what happens on Lao National Day that I could see or perhaps avoid.

Thanks,

David

I am in Vientiane now on 3 December & looks like except for a public holiday on the Monday nothing much happens. On the actual day a lot of the diplomatic corps went to see the President in the morning but no parades or any public ceremonies.

Nothing at all that I can find and I live in Vientiane, public holiday means you may be able to drive in town without the usual jam ups. ATM's still work there are plenty of them.
