The motorcades, cyclists and street parade will leave Saphan Hin after Phuket Governor Chamroen Tipayapongtada declares the event officially open at 9am and head out into all three districts on the island, said a notice issued by the Phuket office of the Public Relations Department today (Aug 3)

The Big Day event campaign in Phuket is organised by Election Commission Phuket office (PEC) and other departments to raise awareness of the referendum on Sunday and aims to encourage all eligible voters to take part, the notice said.

In addition to the multiple street processions, displays and exhibitions will be set up at Saphan Hin as part of the event for people to learn about the Thai constitution and the upcoming referendum.
