Phuket residents are getting ready for the annual 'Wacky Races' to be held at Laguna Phuket on the 7th November.  The event, hosted by Phuket Community Foundation (PCF), is held to raise funds for grants awarded by the foundation at the end of the year and to raise awareness of PCF and their activities.

Prizes will include a four-night stay for two at a Banyan Tree spa pool villa, valued at 154,800 baht a three-night stay for two at an Amanpuri garden villa, valued at 115,000 baht and a years family membership at the Phuket International Academy Sports Club, valued at 100,000 baht.

Kayak, raft, cardboard box and dragon boat races will also be held on the day as well as competitions for Muay Thai.  Face painting, balloon creations and bouncey castles are available for the kids and a grand prize ceremony will be held at 18.30pm.
