Parade along the Patong beach Road at the Phuket Carnival
With party and dining zones colour-coded, you'll be able to do some celebrity spotting as you roam among the stage shows, beachfront bars, street performances, art exhibits and seafood feasts. Also on view will be colourful parades with spectacular floats, fancy dancers and marine mascots.
All activities will be held on Soi Bangla and Patong Beach in 10 different zones, with a guide map of the daily activities, complimentary coupons, activity-entry cards and souvenirs to be given to all participants.
The parade this year will take place from 6 pm until 7 pm on the first day of the carnival, to be led by children in costume, with accompaniment from marine mascots and souped-up motorcars.
Stage performances, scheduled from 7 pm until 10 pm daily, include dance shows, music performances from the likes of hop hip star Joey Boy, cabaret shows and cocktail-drinking competitions.
