Pattaya —

The “Pattaya International Fireworks Festival 2022” is set to light up the skies of Pattaya City and make the jaws of spectators drop next week.

The two-day festival will light up the entire seaside city next week between November 25th to 26th, according to Pattaya mayor Poramase Ngampiches. It is organized by Pattaya City with a mission to attract and amaze tourists, help local people make their living, and revive the world-famous tourist city after things were quieted down for two years during the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to Poramase, the fireworks festival will feature more than 600 street stalls selling all kinds of items and dazzling highlights from professional pyrotechnic teams from Belgium, Canada, Malaysia, and the Philippines.

The mayor believes the festival is sure to uplift the economy as all the rooms in Pattaya, especially the seaside ones, have nearly been fully booked. Admission is free, and as many as 100,000 spectators are expected to flood the city!

For expats, be aware Beach Road will be closed to vehicle traffic from around 5PM on both days of the festival and significant traffic delays are expected around the city.
