“Let there be crayfish!”
With those word, lots of crayfish arrived at the annual Scandinavian Society Siam’s Crayfish party in Bangkok.
120 Danes, Swedes, Norwegians, Finns and Icelanders had gathered together to spend their Saturday evening with friends, crayfish and snaps at the Royal Orchid Sheraton Riverside Ballroom on 22 September 2018.
Before the delicious dinner, people had a chance to catch up with friends or make new ones over a welcome drink. Once at the dinner tables, the guest put on pointy hats and the mandatory apron to prevent strains from the crayfish. Besides crayfish from Thailand, also wine, snaps, and other dishes were served.
Different funny Scandinavian song accompanied the dinner in a competition about finding the best singing table.
As tradition has it, the Crayfish Party featured a lucky draw. The luckiest guest won an open return ticket to Scandinavia, which was sponsored by KLM.
Other sponsors at the party were Black Mountain and KIS international school.
When the lucky winners had collected their prizes, Danny California’s Blues Allstars Band invited the guests to the dancefloor.
Around 11:30 pm most guest started to leave this year’s crayfish party. In only two years, the Crayfish Party can celebrate its 100 year anniversary.
