Thai Loy Krathong Festival

THIS IS A FREE EVENT

About our Thai Lunar Loy Krathong Festival:

"Loi Krathong" is Thailand's oldest festival.
Loi means to float. On the night of the full moon, Thais launch their krathong on a river, canal or a pond, making a wish as they do so.

The festival may originate from an ancient ritual

paying respect to the water spirits. A source of washing away the past for a brighter future.
A ritual of good luck for the new year.

The main feature of the festival is the symbolic placing of flowers in water, followed by thai cultural dances and cultural significant activities as well as authentic Thai cuisine from Melbourne's popular Thai restaurants.

This is an event not to be missed!

The event is proudly supported by:
Queen Victoria Market
Asean Association Australia Inc
Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (invited)
Royal Thai Consulate Melbourne (invited)
Fellow Senators and Members of Parliament
Thai Communities in Melbourne and Victoria
