The parade is organized by the Father Ray Foundation, the Irish Society of Pattaya and City Hall, and once again the parade will be led by the band from the Royal Thai Navy.

His Excellency Mr. Tony Cotter, newly installed Ambassador at the Embassy of Ireland in Bangkok, together with Mrs. Marie Cotter, will be joining thousands to celebrate the patron saint of Ireland.
