It was fun and games for a good cause when Boonsamphan Temple opened the gates to its annual temple fair May 20.

The seven-day event is held annually to raise money for temple upkeep. This year the urgent priorities are renovations to the main sermon hall and the creation of a green area on the temple grounds.

A donation box is set out so that people can make merit by helping the temple pay its utilities.

The fair featured various booths selling goods at reasonable prices, such as clothes, food and drinks.

There also were a number of carnival rides, including a carousel, Ferris wheel, dunk tank and rides for the kids.

Of course, there also were opportunities for merit making, with funds going toward paying utility bills and to complete work on a large Buddha statue.
