The 2017 Songkran festival, the Thai new year celebration/world’s biggest and baddest water fight has come to an end. So… now what? Well, you could put that Super Soaker away until next year, let it collect dust in your utility closet behind a pile of slip ‘N slides, pogo sticks, and other things you pretend not to own. OR… you could keep the party going. What spices up an office party better than water balloons and surprise sprinkler spray? What puts the life back into a baby shower quicker than a baby bottle water battle?
Party on accordingly, my friends. But do party on.
To illustrate my point, here are 17 photos from the 2017 Songkran festival that prove it’s one hell of a party that should never end.
01 | The… You look dry. How in the hell are you dry?
02 | The… Time to bring in the big (water) guns.
03 | The… I’ve got a fever, and the only prescription is more water pressure.
04 | The Forrest Gump: “One day it started raining, and it didn’t quit for four months. Little bitty stingin’ rain… and big ol’ fat rain. Rain that flew in sideways. And sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath.”
05 | The… size matters not
06 | The Songkran uniform
07 | The… Go big or go foam.
08 | The… Holy cow, this just took a turn! OK, maybe size does matter…
09 | The… Look alive, people!
10 | The… Too little, too late lady!
11 | The most hilarious photo bomb
12 | The… I. Am. Splatman.

Until next year! Party on, water soldiers. Party on!
