At 7am a merit-making ceremony was held at Phuket Provincial Hall, with rice, dry foods and other daily necessities offered as alms to 89 monks.

At 8:30am Governor Phakaphong led a wreath-laying ceremony to pay image in front of an image of King Bhumibol at Phuket Rajabhat University.

At 11am hundreds of volunteers helped to clear the Tha Kraeng Canal in Phuket Town as a community project.

After the canal-clearing activity, Governor Phakaphong led an event held at the Phuket Red Cross offices to make merit by providing food and consumer goods to 300 people – the elderly, the impoverished, the disabled and the disadvantaged. The centre also accepted blood donations as way for members of the public to make merit by donating blood.
