Can anyone tell me what the dates are for the festival? I have searched and searched and find TWO different dates!!

It's a week-long festival, but the main event is on the fullmoon day in November. This year, it'll be on 12 November.

Which two dates did you find?

I have found two dates, Nov 12th and also Nov 24 or 28th (sorry dont remember right now). I am assuming that the 12th is the accurate date due to the full moon in November. I am going to be in the area and hoping to go to Laos and would be nice to be there during the festival if I can.

Thank you for your reply.
