A big event here in Nan. Several streets on the south west side of the main shopping district closed and temporary stalls and amusements in place until the 4th. Been quite a few boats being trailer-ed about as well. Some take quite some maneuvering to get about the town due to the length and tight corners. A drop of 5 degrees expected here for the morning minimum tomorrow and for the next several days.
