They will be able to immerse themselves in all the beautiful things that Thai culture has to offer.” This year, the festival will take place outdoors for the first time in three years. Ms Chinthammit said the festival had already exceeded its capacity when standing inside. “We have a lot of food stalls and it’s hard to have them inside, so we figured Civic Square would be a perfect space,” she said.
