PHUKET: Provincial officials have issued a ban on the sale – and firing of – large fireworks at the upcoming Phuket Vegetarian Festival, to be held from October 1-9.


“The Phuket Vegetarian Festival is considered one of the oldest and most beautiful traditions held on the island. The objective of the festival is to promote purity of the mind and body and to discourage any public nuisance,” said Phuket Vice Governor Chokdee Amornwat in a release issued yesterday (Sept 22).


In order to make, order, sell or even “import” of any fireworks during the festival required a permit from a local district office in Phuket, V/Gov Chokdee announced, in accordance with preserving the “traditional” sincerity of the festival.


“Also, large fireworks such as Ba Jang, ‘Chicken Eggs’ and rockets are banned during the festival,” he said.


Phuket Provincial Police Commander Maj Gen Teeraphol Thipjaroen issued a notice that he had received the order and confirmed that police will enforce the ban.
