PHUKET: All ‘Ma Song’ spirit mediums and their assistants must be fully vaccinated before being allowed to join ceremonies during the upcoming Vegetarian Festival, Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew has announced.


The news comes following the decision last week to allow the annual festival to be held this year, from Oct 6-14.


The festival will begin with the raising of the ‘Go Teng’ poles being raised at participating shrines at sunset on Oct 5, allowing the Nine Emperor Gods to descend from the heavens. The festival will conclude with the lowering of the Go Teng poles on Oct 15.
