More than 20,000 poinsettias covering 10 rai at the entrance to Loei’s Phu Rua National Park will be dazzling visitors to this year’s Christmas flower festival starting on November 21.



Phu Rua district chief Kittikhun Butrkhun said the seventh annual festival would continue through January 31.

The district office, the Loei office of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Tambon Phu Rua Municipality and several private firms and local schools are co-hosting the event.

Trees will be decorated with lights for beautiful evening strolls and OTOP goods will be on sale.

The festival’s official opening at 6pm on November 24 will feature a show by the Joe Louis Puppet Theatre and popular local restaurants will have booths selling meals.

Kittikhun said more food booths would offer traditional dishes of the Northeast every Friday and Saturday night throughout the festival.
