Children dump water on each other during the Myanmar Water Festival Tuesday, July 4, 2017, at Rock Creek Park in Twin Falls, Idaho. The Water Festival, or Thingyan Festival, marks the start of the Burmese New Year. It typically falls around mid-April. But here in Twin Falls, it’s often still cold at that time of year. NOTE: I tried to get their names, but they got lost in the crowd. This is a great event if you want to find yourself a little culture.
