Children’s Day becomes 2 days in Pattaya


Children’s Day was so big in Pattaya, it couldn’t be contained to just one day.

A day after Thailand’s Jan. 9 official youth day, various Pattaya neighborhoods hosted more activities.

Games offering prizes figured heavily into the schedule, with old-fashioned fun including blowing rubber bands, rock paper scissors, musical chairs, quizzes, guess the word, Ginkgo, and tug of war.

The events were free and began as early as 8 a.m.

Wirath Joijinda, president of the Soi Kophai Community, thanked private organizations, government officers and the public for supporting the Children’s Day events and supplying free food and drinks.
