Pattaya Culture Council hosted activities to honor mothers on the occasion of National Mother’s Day 2019.

Earlier in the day, Pattaya Mayor Sonthaya Kunplome opened the “Good Mothers, Honour of the Land” program with Pattaya Cultural Council Chairman Mana Yaprakum at Central Festival Pattaya Beach.

The council and former politicians handed out awards to 45 outstanding mothers while offspring presented flower garlands to their mothers.

It was movie stars, not politicians, taking center stage as the A’ La Campagne tea factory and café off Sukhumvit Road in Huay Yai hosted the Pattaya Star Academy fashion show to raise money for environmental causes.

Movie stars, models and beauty queens including Nok Manaschanok Songsrisuk and Miss Grand Chonburi Name Wachiraya Aumnoy strolled the catwalk in gowns and other high fashion to support those working for environmental conservation, a lifelong interest of the Queen Mother.
