Thai New Year Festival - 04/05
Saw this in the LA Times Daily Dish blog yesterday. I'm trying to convince my friend to go. We'll see. I can just taste the pad thai now...
Thai Town celebrates Songkran, Thailand's traditional New Year, by closing off Hollywood Boulevard between Western and Normandie and filling it with delicious Thai food booths, Singha beer vendors, live music, Thai boxing, dancing and traditional arts and crafts. The second annual International Curry Festival is also part of the mix, when international curry products will compete for the "Curry King" title. Thousands of people are expected, so may we suggest you arrive via subway. There's a Red Line stop at Hollywood and Western. Songkran Festival, Hollywood Boulevard, between Normandie and Western. 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Free.
