There are puppet shows, processions, and areas to view the floats on both days of the festival, but the thing that is unique about the first day is the parade of floats in the evening, when they are all lit with lanterns and hauled through the streets. I thought that was a highlight of the festival.
I am not sure when they start taking the floats back to their store houses on the second day, but it is fairly early I believe. Early evening I mean - sixish? I could be wrong. But you wouldn't want to arrive the evening of the 15th, then you would miss everything.
