There was music and food aplenty as the 10th Walk & Eat market opened in Naklua.
Mayor Sonthaya Kunplome and a host of local and tourism officials were on hand for the Jan. 5 kickoff.
The “walking street” promotes Naklua’s heritage as an old fishing village and showcases locally caught seafood and products made by locals. Officials called it an opportunity for residents to take charge of tourism in Naklua and make extra money.
Themed “See, Taste, Shop, Click, Share”, Walk & Eat runs weekends through Feb. 24 from 3:30-10 p.m. Traffic is closed from the Naklua police booth to the long bridge from 3-10:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
Food vendors pledged this year not to use plastic bags or foam boxes.
In addition to food, music and cultural performances play out on three stages located in front of Government Savings Bank, at the 100 Years Naklua Old Market and at the Naklua Long Bridge.
Pop star Tu Pobthon Suntornyanakit performed at the opening. (PCPR)
