This is footage of a procession of newly ordained Buddhist monks in Hua Hin, Thailand. This is one the final stages of the ordination process. The monks walk around town (usually a few kilometers) and are accompanied by lay people. This is always a very happy moment as people celebrate this event with dancing and music as they follow the monks.

 

Men going through the first stage of an ordination ceremony in order to enter the Thai Buddhist monastic community. In Thailand, it’s very common for a man to become a monk for a short period in his life.
