Giant Street Puppets

I took these photos on the first day of the Water Festival in Siem Reap. These giant puppets, one male and one female, are carried through the streets, accompanied by musicians and a lot of people dressed in their finest, some carrying giant umbrellas and food baskets. My Cambodian friend tells me this bon (festival) is for donations, usually for a temple.
