This year's Loy Krathong Festival will be celebrated at Patawalonga Lake, Glenelg on 4th November 2017 from 3pm-8.30pm.

The Loy Krathong festival is world renowned as a positive and respectful experience. The krathong is a candle raft floated in the water as a mark of respect to Buddha and gives thanks to Phra Mae Khongkha, the Goddess of Water, along with bringing good luck. The candle respects the Buddha with light, floating of the krathong symbolises the release of hatred, anger, and negative traits.

Glenelg's Loy Krathong Festival will offer up Thai food, Nopphamat beauty contests, Thai classical dance, Ramwong performance, a Krathong making competition, rubber duck racing (including a corporate duck race) and Muay Thai dancing (Wai Khru Muay Thai).
