Every year, this Thai town holds a birthday party for its population of wild monkeys - and the results are crazy. Tables of fruits, candy, ice cream and juice are laid out on tables throughout the day in Lopburi, Thailand.

Two picnic tables decked out with goodies carried into the town's ancient Buddhist temple sparks chaotic scenes as the primates go wild for their lunch.

Monkeys grappled for the sweets, with larger creatures scaring away the smaller ones.

Some monkeys even leap on the heads of spectators.

A photographer had two animals sit on his head after they knocked off his hat.

Several of the women found themselves with monkeys on their heads, pulling at their hair and tugging at their clothes.

The Lopburi Monkey Party has become an annual attraction for locals and tourists across the central province.

Buddhists believe that the monkey is a symbol of good luck and that by honoring them with a birthday party, they will receive good fortune in the coming year.
