There were Thai traditional dancing and live music performances as the carnival began, this year for the first time being held in conjunction with the Patong Seafood Festival, from November 1-3.
The three-day event will maintain its traditional full schedule of entertainment, displays and activities people to take part in, Patong Mayor Chalermluck Kebsup explained last week.
“But for first time the Patong Carnival and the Patong Seafood Festival will be held at the same time, so people will have much to enjoy,” she said.
“All the parades and cultural shows will still be part of the festival, but the big attraction will be the Seafood Festival. This year is the 30th year of the carnival, and we want to bring something new and exciting to the event, and this year we will deliver more creativity. We hope to push our city to the next level and generate creative tourism in the Patong area.”
The focus area of the Seafood Festival will be Bangla Rd, Soi Post Office (Soi Praisanee) and Soi Dr Wattana, the latter two of which join the beach road.
“Patong Municipality has taken steps to preserve tourists’ security in every part of festival,” Mayor Chalermluck said. “I hope that everyone enjoys the seafood. I am confident that this festival will impressfor sure.”
