One of the most popular events that is organized towards the end of the rainy season every year is the Buffalo Racing in Chonburi. This takes place in front of the provincial buildings. The festivities will run from 26 October to 1 November 2012. However, the popular buffalo racing takes place on Monday 29th October. As well as the racing there will be buffalo beauty contests, parades and sporting events such as climbing the greasy pole.
