Parade, costume contest highlight Pattaya Halloween Festival


Halloween is here this weekend, and the city is conjuring up a scary parade and costume contest.


Pattaya is cooking up a witch’s brew of parades and contests for its annual Halloween Festival Oct. 30-31.

The 6 million baht event kicks off at 7 p.m. Saturday night, October 30, with a parade along Beach Road from Walking Street to the Hard Rock Hotel. There ghouls and goblins will vie for 150,000 baht in prizes in a Halloween costume contest.

The event is sponsored by the city, Chonburi Province and the Tourism Authority of Thailand in hopes of scaring up additional tourists for the city.
