The International Fireworks Festival in Pattaya this year was a great success, according to Mayor Poramet Ngampichet. The festival was held on November 24-25. There was a surge in hotel bookings, with all rooms being fully booked within days of the event announcement. The festival attracted both beachgoers and boat enthusiasts in Pattaya Bay.
To ensure the event benefited the local community, the Pattaya City administration, led by Mayor Poramet, set up 600 stalls for locals to sell their goods. The booth fees were waived to support local entrepreneurs and promote economic growth at the grassroots level.
The festival drew in over 200,000 tourists each day to the three-kilometer stretch of Pattaya Beach. Many opted to watch the fireworks from hotels and restaurants, providing them with ideal views. Mayor Poramet expressed satisfaction with the positive response from tourists, as it significantly stimulated the local economy.
To address concerns about traffic and unregulated transportation services, the Pattaya administration collaborated with law enforcement and transport authorities. Traffic management measures were implemented to enhance the overall experience for residents and visitors. Future events will involve relevant agencies to prevent unauthorized influx of vehicles and address related issues.
Mayor Poramet acknowledged the challenges posed by unauthorized taxi-riders and emphasized ongoing efforts to improve the situation. Collaborative work with law enforcement and the vigilance of residents in reporting violations were recognized and appreciated. The Pattaya Police were also commended for their continuous support.
