The Phuket Vegetarian Festival this year will be held from Sept 29 to Oct 7.

“There will be a lot of both local residents and tourists coming to join the festival,” V/Gov Thanyawat told a meeting held at Phuket Provincial Hall on Wednesday (Sept 4).

“Officers are to prepare medical staff to take care of ‘Ma Song’ (spirit mediums) who will perform ritualized mutilation and other participants,” V/Gov Thanyawat said.

Vice/Gov Thanyawat also repeatedly told relevant officials to examine the items used for the ritualized mutilation.

“The items used may cause big wounds or infection and need to be closely checked. The use of fireworks must be in accordance with government regulations,” he added.

“The procession will start at 3:30pm from Sanam Chai in front of Phuket Provncial Hall and proceed to Saphan Hin,” he said.
