This year’s Pattaya International Fireworks Festival will light up the sky Nov. 30-Dec. 1.
Down from 10 foreign participants in previous years, this year’s festival will feature 45-minute shows by teams from Canada, China, Singapore and the United States. Four Thai celebrities were named at the Nov. 16 announcement in Bangkok to serve as honorary team captains.
Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome said the event also would feature booths selling locally made products, a carnival-style parade, shows and concerts.
Last Year’s fireworks festival was an amazing spectacle. Organizers hope this year’s festival, although apparently smaller, will be just as amazing.
The main “Brighten Your Life” fireworks show will take place Nov. 30 along Beach Road, which will close from 3:30 to 11 p.m. Other activities will include magic and juggling shows, plus “3D painting photography.”
The second day will feature musical performances from Watcharawalee and Slot Machine, a parade of Pattaya schoolchildren and market-style booths. At 9 p.m. a smaller fireworks show will commence, followed by a concert from Tattoo Colour at 10 p.m.
