The military in Chiang Mai has ordered the cancellation of a major sky lantern event planned for the Loy Krathong festival in November, following heavy criticism from conservation groups.

 

The event, jointly organized by the Chiang Mai Tourism Industry Council and the Office Huay Toeng Thao reservoir tourism promotion project, was to be held at Huay Toeng Thao in Mae Rim district of Chiang Mai.

 

About 20,000 Chinese tourists are expected to join the event and the organizers had hoped to set Guinness world record for the largest number of sky lanterns to be floated in the air at a single event.

  the event was planned to be held on Army property Huey Tung Dtou .. is part of their vast land holdings so I suppose they can cancel.

Thanks for the full  info I never  read the linked articles. Even so it was Chiang Mai Tourism Industry Council and the Office Huay Toeng Thao reservoir tourism promotion project

Even so the military should inform the government of their intentions and the government make such public announcements

Should have nothing to do with the army and what a total brain dead place on earth to ever try to have over 20,000+ Thai and tourists go and get back to town which is actually an area that is natural. On the other hand, Huay Toeng Thao reservoir should not even be their property.
