The much anticipated Glom x Hug Lanna Songkran Festival which was to be a celebration of a more gentle Songkran here in Chiang Mai in the 1970s, has been cancelled due to air pollution, organisers tell CityNews. “It is with deep regret that Glom x Hug Lanna have made the decision to cancel our upcoming event ‘Hug Pee Mai: A Lanna New Year’s Celebration’ which was to take place on April 13th from 12-6pm at Suan Haiya at the Old Chiang Mai Cultural Center. The hazardous levels of air pollution that have hit the Northern region very hard this year make it dangerous for everyone to be outdoors, particularly sensitive groups such as children and the elderly. We wish you all well in the coming new year and hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy. Sawasdee pee mai jao!”
