A TASTE of Thailand came to the heart of Southampton over the weekend.
More than a thousand people descended on Mayflower Park to see a host of the south-east Asian country’s colourful cultural offerings.
The two-day event, which was organised by the Southampton Thai Festival Group, kicked off in style with a procession that featured colourful traditional Thai costumes.
Crowds were entertained by a variety of displays and activities including boxing matches, traditional dancing, cookery demonstrations, massages and a range of Thai cuisine.
One of the organisers Joy Needham, said: “Everything went well and everyone that came along had a good time.”
