The road will be closed from the Kasikornbank branch In front of the Karon Municipality office to the Pak Bang canal at the northern end of the beach, Karon Municipality announced yesterday.
The road will be closed during preparations and all throughout the festival, which will conclude this Sunday (Aug 28), the municipality added.
Karon Municipality apologised for any inconvenience caused by the road closure, but urged people to enjoy the festival.
