Last night was the last in the Pattaya International Fireworks Festival. Despite recent heavy rain last night was comparatively dry. Many people crowded the beach and businesses with good views of the event.
The fireworks show was part of the second international fireworks festival. This year’s display is reputed to be the largest in Thailand’s history. As well as the competition fireworks display a extravagant display was made in celebration of the queen of Thailand’s birthday a couple of days earlier.
For the demostration Beach Road was closed to vehicle traffic both Friday and Saturday nights. This allowed many people to pack Beach Road near the display. I took a more relax route and enjoyed the show from Pattaya Beer Garden near Walking Street. It was a little further away but being able to sit with a beer and have a meal while enjoying the show was a great experience. Many people had the same idea.
Pattaya also puts on a fireworks display during the festive season with the show on New Years being the highlight. Maybe you would like to come and enjoy the next show?
