Thai media Manager said it is an event not to be missed - the Pattaya Fireworks Festival 2020 is on this Friday and Saturday November 27th/28th on the main beach. 

 

Formerly billed as an international event and competition, this year, due to the pandemic, it will showcase Thai pyrotechnic skills.

 

The Thai theme will also be prevalent in music from around the kingdom. Many bands and 140 shops will cater to the throngs. 

 

The main Beach Road will be closed from the Dolphin Roundabout to the Walking Street entrance from 4 pm to midnight to enable ease of access for tourists.

 

Sunday will also see events to mark the 42nd year since the founding of Pattaya.

AIR POLLUTION!

It'll be passed off as low lying fog in the morning.

Get real, this is Thailand, nothing is on-time. First firework show was nearly an hour late.

What holiday exactly are you referring to?

Bad timing indeed. The long weekend is just behind (19 to 22).

How many will make it from Bangkok again on Friday?

It's not a holiday and they aren't staging this to "save the economy". 

It's an annual event that has been happening for years now. The only difference is this year won't have any international teams displaying their expertise.

There isn't going to be any "super spreader" BS because the only cases of covid in the country are the ones in quarantine, despite what a certain segment of the expat population wants to believe (with absolutely no evidence of course). 
This event will be no different (in that respect) than the Bikini Run/Halloween/Loy Krathong event at the end of October, but hopefully with better weather.

If it is set up the same as the last event, then the concert stage will be on the beach right across from the Central Pattaya/Beach Road intersection. Last time, it was "aimed" (the stage and speakers) towards South Pattaya. We were on the beach in North Pattaya around Soi 2 and never even knew there was a concert happening until we drove home.
