Come and celebrate the Loy Krathong at Parramatta Foreshore this Saturday. Acclaimed as Thailand’s very own ‘Festival of Lights’, Loy Krathong falls on the evening of a full moon in the traditional Thai lunar calendar. ‘Loy Krathong’ means ‘to float a basket’, and one of the signature celebrative rituals is to launch a lantern on the water, sending your prayers and best wishes along.
It was established in November 2015, and resides in Parramatta’s Riverside Theatres complex. At the time, there were some humorous questions about how something in Sydney’s west could be a “national theatre”. But chuckle not!
