Thai Festival Perth 2009 - how they went in the wet

It was not the most pleasant of days in Perth West Australia on 20th September 2009

The weather tested the enthusiasm and appetite of the festival patrons.

The day jostled from sunshine to rain but it did not distract all those that love the Taste of Thai, the smiles, the food the wonderful memories of "sanook" (enjoyment) whenever there is a Thai smile to be seen.

Well done Perth for showing up and putting on a terrific support for a good friend Thailand

The Festival proved once again that Thailand brings out the best in all of us, the Community arrived in a constant flow throughout the day, selecting delicious Thai food for a taste on the day as well as extra purchase for home.

The event organisers prevailed a streamlined flow of dynamic events from Music, Dance, Food Carving events, fun and games for the kids and of course the compulsory Beer garden Haven for those that need to replenish their fuel system.

We invited comment from VIP ... We acknowledge feedback from Long time loyal supporter JOHN HYDE MLA

I dare say there has not been one occasion where the good John has not hesitated to come forward and offer support to the Community and share a few words to help us promote the Community, thanks John

“Congratulations to all involved with this year’s Thai Festival in Perth. It was tremendous to see the many local people who visited to gain an understanding of Thai culture. I was honoured to present a message of support from the Federal Minister for Immigration and Multicultural Interests, the Hon Chris Evans.”
