Laem Panwa Festival took place last weekend.
The festival began with a competition between the ex-pupils of Laem Panwa School. They took a ‘long-tail’ boat out on the water to see who could catch the biggest fish. The rule for this competition was that they could only use a rod.
Urai’s husband Surasak came second – he caught a barracuda! (Urai works at Kantary Bay Hotel)
This was followed on the next day with a fishing boat race. The race started at the Phuket Aquarium and the fishermen had to circumnavigate Lon Island and return. Froid was the winner!
The whole festival was followed by a traditional barbecue and party in the Phuket Aquarium car park – including karaoke, games, drinks and food and lots of fun.
