More than just another Fun Run, the Hua Hin Night Run will full of concert entertainment with some giant hot air balloons providing a spectacular backdrop after dark.
At a press conference on Wednesday, we were given a preview of what to expect. With the gas burner set in a small ‘dog-sized’ basket suspended below the balloon, flames heated air within the 10 metre canopy, only restrained from heading skyward by an attentive minder.
Our reference to a ‘dog-sized’ basket follows one tongue in cheek comment by a bystander about the possibility of sending a pooch ‘up, up and away’ in one of these beautiful balloons. One balloon resembled a giant Halloween pumpkin, perhaps in readiness to let it loose on Saturday night.
The Hua Hin Night Run will money for tourist police to help the poor and disadvantaged in Hua Hin and nearby areas. Pol. Maj. Gen. Ankoon said that with the Prachuap Khiri Khan Tourist Police Advisory Board, realises the importance and benefits of the Tourist Police to the tourism sector in the area of security for both Thai and foreign tourists.
The event will be held from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm, starting at Rajabhakti Park to Suan Son Pradipat Beach over a distance of 5 or 10 kilometres. The event is managed by the Thai Jogging Federation In collaboration with Thai Health Promotion Foundation.
