Red Cross Fair 2011 in Hua Hin


The Retro Hua Hin, one of the most famous festive events of Hua Hin, will coincide with the Red Cross Fair 2011 from 28 April to 8 May at the 19-Rai Queen Sirikit Memorial Park.

With the main aim to raise funds for activities of the Hua Hin Red Cross Center, promote tourism in the city and encourage local people to foster traditional art and culture, this year’s events will focus especially on solidarity and unity of all Thai people to celebrate His Majesty the King’s 84th anniversary on 5 December.

Both the events will highlight many exhibits from governmental and private organizations and local students, performances to honor His Majesty by local students, selling of the One-Tambon-One-Product (OTOP) as well as the fascinating light and sound show relating historical background of Hua Hin. This will enable visitors to know more about the much beloved beachfront town of Thailand. Moreover, mini-concerts of many famous Thai singers and actors will be held together with the big parade to honor His Majesty around the Hua Hin town.

According to Mr. Somchai Bamrungsap, the District Chief of Hua Hin, currently, a lot of people are staying in the city whether temporarily or permanently. The more people are living here, the more actively the Red Cross staff are working. The staff is now providing help to the poor, the disabled and those affected by natural disasters. Besides, they represent the Bangkok Red Cross Headquarters on blood and organ donations and the support of boy scouts and girl guides.
