This year’s parade route will begin on Second Road at the Alcazar Theatre and turn onto Soi 4 before marching down Beach Road to Walking Street. The parade then turns on South Road and ends at Pattaya School No. 8.

Two lanes of traffic will be closed for the parade, which runs from 3-4:30 p.m.

Both marchers and floats will be decked out in the traditional green. A marching band comprised of students from all Pattaya public schools will help pump up the volume.
