  Bangkok marching band
by Minstrelette

I worked at a convention at the IMPACT convention centre. In addition to the purpose of the convention, they have other things throughout the day that make the convention an event. They had local entertainment (one day there was a teen pop star), royalty came the first day (the was a BIG deal), and every morning they had a local boys marching band to start the day. I've been to conventions in many places in the world, and I've never seen so much local pride than in Bangkok. I asked a woman who worked at the centre if all the fanfare was typical, and she said yes. So if you have a convention here, be prepared for some colour to your otherwise mundane day.
