PHUKET: Thousands of devotees turned out for the final night of the Phuket Vegetarian Festival last night (Oct 25), with all the major shrines taking part in the festival converging on Saphan Hin for the traditional final ceremonies, the presentation of offerings and the burning of written prayers and blessings for the gods.




Devotees from each major shrine carried images of the Nine Emperor Gods through the streets of Phuket Town amid the blaze of firecrackers, arriving at Saphan Hin in time for the final ceremonies to begin at 10pm, and conclude at midnight.


Among the host of high-ranking officials present for the final ceremonies were Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew and his wife Mrs Wandee.
