I tried to get a good shot of the kickboxing, but this is the best one I got.
I didn't watch many matches (too crowded).
These are the beauty pageant finalists.
While the judges scores were being tallied, there was entertainment provided by the 12-year-old official Songbird of Southeast Asia - (a little girl with a big voice). She sang what I call "a typical pageant song," One Moment in Time, by Whitney Houston. She did a great job. =0)
I wasn't able to snap a photo of the actual winner of the title, but I snapped this one of "Best Smile" winner (contestant #15).
I didn't get any shots of the traditional dances or dancers, which is a bummer. Many of the performers came all the way from Thailand to perform. It was fun to attend, because my family hasn't been to a New Year Festival in a couple of years. Hopefully we'll get to go again next year too (that way I can take more photos)!
