    On Oct 22 there will be a procession conducted from the Thewet area down to Wat Arun.

    Government release here.

    To be noted:

    Also there will be practices sporadically before then, with dress rehearsals on Oct 13 and Oct 18.

    See here.

    I saw a video of a previous procession while visiting the Royal Barge museum back in March. I wish I could make it to Bangkok for the event.
