ELE­PHANTS IN COLOUR

Five Star Kids - - WWW. FIVESTARKIDSMAGAZINE.COM. AU -

Anan­tara Ho­tels & Re­sorts is ready to bring the world’s largest open-air art ex­hi­bi­tion, Ele­phant Pa­rade, to Bangkok. This fam­ily favourite has ex­hib­ited in cities all over the world, in­clud­ing Lon­don, Mi­lan, Sin­ga­pore and Hong Kong, and is now ready for its Thai de­but.

Ele­phant Pa­rade’s be­gin­nings tell quite the story. When founder Marc Spits and his son Mike vis­ited Friends of the Asian Ele­phant Hos­pi­tal in Lam­pang, Thai­land, they came across Mosha, an ele­phant that had lost a leg af­ter step­ping on a land­mine as an in­fant. Each year, Mosha is fit­ted with a new leg, and at Ele­phant Pa­rade in Bangkok, Mosha will make a spe­cial ap­pear­ance with a Thai-themed pros­thetic.

Along­side Mosha will be a herd of al­most 100 ele­phant mod­els, colour­fully dec­o­rated and brightly hand­painted by artists and stars such as Fast & Furious 7’ s Tony Jaa, The Han­gover 2’ s Nirut Sirichanya and Miss Thai­land World, Cindy Bishop. Ex­pect lots of fun, as well as a bit of celeb- spot­ting! The ex­hibit will hit three key spots in Bangkok from 1 De­cem­ber 2015 to 29 Jan­uary 2016. www.ele­phant­pa­rade­bangkok.com
