The “Colorful East, Color Your Life” tourism fair sponsored by four Eastern Seaboard provinces left a colorful mess on Pattaya Beach for city workers to clean up.

The Pattaya Health and Environment Office required two sweeps along Beach Road to remove the garbage, retail debris and toilets left behind by vendors and shoppers at the Aug. 2-5 festival. About 30 workers hit the street on the fair’s final evening, then returned the next day to pick up after stragglers.

City workers clean up the usual mess left behind by still another big event on Beach Road. City workers clean up the usual mess left behind by still another big event on Beach Road.
