Monkeys and residents of Lopburi Province celebrated the 31st Monkey Party Festival held Sunday (November 24) at the iconic archaeological site Phra Prang Sam Yot with a buffet of fruits and sweets and fancy parades.

Opening the event, provincial governor Yongyuth Kitwatananusont jokingly issued an official invitation to the monkeys to join the celebration – not that they needed much encouragement!

Hundreds of Thai and foreign tourists flocked to see the simian free for all, laughing and snapping photos as the monkeys chowed down.

Phra Prang Sam Yot is one of the most famous tourist attractions of Lopburi province thanks to its monkey residents, who draw visitors and generate revenue for the locals.
