The annual Phuket Heroines’ Festival in Thalang is underway. Historical performances started the festival on Monday night (March 13th) and the event was greater and more spectacular than ever before.
The Phuket Vice Governor Amnuay Pinsuwan led the opening for the historical performance of Thao Thep Krasattri and Thao Sri Soonthorn during the “238th anniversary in honor of the two heroines of Thalang.”
The key moment of the event is the historical performance of the Thao Thep Krasattri and the Thao Si Soonthorn over the three days festival. The two heroines and the ancestors of Phuket fought and sacrificed themselves with bravery for the protection of the land on which many still reside peacefully today.
Famous Thai singer and actress Gam Witchayanee and Maprang Veeragun are present this year acting as the Heroines.
There are many other activities such as traditional light and sound performances, the selling of various products and local food from Phuket with more than 200 stalls, and a lot more.
The festival is being held at the Thalang Historical Park in Baan Reang, Thep Krasattri, Thalang district from 5:00 P.M. onward until tomorrow (March 15th).
