The Hua Hin Cultural Council is hosting the 7th cultural festival entitled, “Fostering Thai Culture and Community Relations to Honor His Majesty,” between 9 and 11 December at the Phon Kingphet Memorial Park.
The main objectives of this event are to promote traditional Thai art and culture and conserve local intellect so that young generations realize the value of Thainess and pass it on to other generations.
Main activities include stage performances by students in Hua Hin in the evening every day, a contest of the best-mannered students and the singing contest on royal songs by 8-12 year old students, 12-18 year old students, university students and people. Moreover, there will be a model show of traditional Thai clothes from the Ayudhaya to Rattanakosin periods and selling of One-Tambon-One-Product (OTOP) goods.
The chairperson of the Hua Hin Cultural Council Mrs. Wanna Choksuchart said that not only was Hua Hin a famous holiday getaway for Thai and foreign vacationers but the city was now also a getaway choice for Bangkokians whose house was flooded. Therefore, this event will attract both visitors while promote tourism in the city in the high season. Besides, since December is the month Thai people celebrate the King’s birthday, this event will serve to honor the most beloved monarch whose contribution for Thai art and culture is invaluable, too.
