The event was also held to raise awareness of the cleanliness and orderliness in Phuket, Governor Norraphat posted online today (July 20).
The event, joined by scores of people, was also attended by Muang Phuket District Chief, Karon Mayor, Karon Police, heads of government sectors, staff from local administration organisations as well as local residents.
As part of the event, teams of attendees collected rubbish and cut grass along the area in front of Kata Beach.

Registration at the stadium will be open from 8am to 4pm on both days.
People wanting to take part were advised that they must wear yellow on the day and to dress appropriately. Jeans, flip flops, and shorts were specifically identified as not appropriate.
