The Loy Krathong Festival was a huge success! It has attracted a lot of people from far and near, sitting by the Parramatta river bank and enjoying themselves.
Come and celebrate the Loy Krathong at Parramatta Foreshore this Saturday. Acclaimed as Thailand’s very own ‘Festival of Lights’, Loy Krathong falls on the evening of a full moon in the traditional Thai lunar calendar. ‘Loy Krathong’ means ‘to float a basket’, and one of the signature celebrative rituals is to launch a lantern on the water, sending your prayers and best wishes along.
