Nong Plalai will host its first Loy Krathong festival in three years with a children’s pageant and dance contest topping the list of activities.
Mayor Pinyo Homklin presided over an Oct. 29 planning meeting for the Nov. 22 event in Moo 2 village.
The sub-district did not hold Loy Krathong celebrations in 2016 and 2017 due to the royal mourning period for King Rama IX. However, it’s back and bigger than ever this year.
A Little Noppamas for young girls will be held in the village’s large park while a traditional folk dancing contest is set for adults.
Pinyo said Moo 2 was chosen to host the festival as it has a large lake, ample parking and a field to host the activities.
