Thai Culture and Food Festival at Fed Square 15th March 2014

From Thai Culture and Food Festival 2014  at Fed Square post – continued…

At the festival a booklet was didtributed titled Sanook which means having fun. However, the first thing that came to my mind is the elephant calf that died at the Melbourne Zoo. The booklet makes interesting reading about Thailand, the people and its culture.  Made up my mind to visit Thailand and experience that culture, traditions and the hospitality of the people of Thailand.

Could not make it on Sunday when the festival was to be at its best with a Buddhist ceremony, Khon – a classical mask dance, a beauty contest, traditional Thai dances, their traditional musical instruments, cooking demonstrations, and various performing bands.

Its on my calendar for next year.
