The festival, he said, shows off the colors of Lamphun’s Old Town with light displays along Inthayongyot Road and around the old city’s moat.




Special displays are set at Phra That Hariphunchai Temple, Lamphun City Hall, the Khum Jao Jakkham Gate, Chang Sri Gate, Phra Nang Chamadevi Monument, Li Gate and others.

The Lamphun City Hall Flower Garden features a light sculpture at the visitor’s center using lit-up water droplets to simulate a meteor shower. Other highlights include a projection-mapping light show called “Back in the Face of Hariphunchai City” at the Phechara old building near Phra That Hariphunchai Temple every Saturday and Sunday at 8 p.m.

Lamphun also is running a photo contest with the festival, awarding 30,000 baht in prizes for the best photos of the light displays. For more information, call 053-561-430.
