Varied activities across Thailand honour the King on his birthday

 BANGKOK, Dec 4 -- Thais across the country joined hands to organise different activities in honour of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej on the auspicious occasion of his 87th birthday on December 5.
The Royal Thai Army, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), and the Jesada Technik Museum co-sponsored a parade of over 130 Micro and ancient vehicles in honour of His Majesty, a motorcar enthusiast, celebrating His birthday. The parade begins at Sanam Luang ground and ends at the museum, a distance of 14 kilometres.
Similarly, the Thailand Off-Road Network is holding an Off-Road Classic Parade starting from the Royal Plaza passing through Rajadamnoen Nok Avenue and ending at Sanam Luang.
Meanwhile, Bangkok Governor Sukhumbhand  Paribatra led the plating of 1,888 Golden Shower trees (Cassia fistula,  known in Thai as rajaphreuk) 14 kilometres of roads in Rat Uthit-Liab Waree and Min Buri-Nong Chok districts.

 Commerce Minister Gen Chatchai Sarikulya and ministry officials signed well-wishing messages to His Majesty before releasing 290,000 fish and shrimp back into the wild in honour of the King's birthday and to follow through with the Fisheries Department's goal of releasing 88 million fish back into the wild across the nation.
Department of Special Investigation (DSI) Director Suwana Suwanjata led officials giving alms to 9 monks and took the oath of allegiance to His Majesty earlier today, on the auspicious occasion. (MCOT online news)
