- See Pattaya's St Patrick's Day Parade this March

February 25, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Visitors to Pattaya this March will be able to take part in a St Patrick's Day Parade for the second year in a row.
The celebration of all things Irish will take place on Saturday March 17th and will see the Thai city become a sea of green, with organisers hoping to exceed the popularity of last year's inaugural parade.
Pattaya's thriving expat community means that a large number of Irish bars are now open across the city, many of which marked last year's event by creating their own lavish parade floats for the festivities.
Alongside the colourful costumes, spirited music and widespread merriment, there will also be a more serious side to the celebration, as a large portion of the proceeds will be donated to charitable causes.
One of the key beneficiaries will be the Father Ray Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation that cares for 850 orphaned or disadvantaged children and students with disabilities.
The foundation has pledged to work with authorities in Pattaya to make sure this year's parade is the biggest yet.
Tourists celebrating St Patrick's Day can find Pattaya hotels of all descriptions at, which recommends the Centara Grand Mirage Beach Resort.
