Iconsiam showcased an eco-friendly fireworks made from Thai sticky rice. Created by Japan’s pyrogenic expert Oguchi Yoshimasa, it lighted up the sky over a 1.4km stretch of the majestic Chao Phraya River allowing viewers to see the fireworks within a 5km radius.

Due to concerns about the spread of Covid, visitors were required to show proof of vaccination (at least two doses) and a negative ATK result before entering the outdoor activities.
