Another Tourism Authority of Thailand Error in Isaan

"Make merit in 'Tak Bat Devo Festival 2011' October 15-26 at Kalasin City Pillar Shrine, Kalsin. Call 043 – 871146 for more info."
That was the Khon Kaen TAT post on their "face is more important than fact" page on Facebook.
I contacted a long time contact for 2 reasons !
I have never heard of a Tak Bat Devo go on for that long and If TAT posts it I assume an error.
Here is the reply to my question
Dear Khun Tom, Tak Bat Devo you mention will be at Larn Tham, Phoo Sing Temple, Sa Hat Sa Khan. The event will last only 2 days-15 to 16 October. More info may be at Nonbuee Municipality's website . If you call that number u gave me please ask for KhunTukta.

Khon Kaen Cinema Festival

I am sure you all have been reading about the upcoming festival here in Khon Kaen. When I saw the sugn this morning I asked why it was in english? I was told ' because it is international" Give me a break TAT has not even posted anything about this in Thai let alone English.
I will be posting more on Khon Kaen and TAT efforts to have people partying and drinking before the end of Pansaa over the next few days
