Some 150,000 hats have been prepared for the public who line the 7km stretch of road to welcome His Majesty the King during the royal procession after coronation ceremony on May 5, Police Strategy Office commissioner Lt-General Kraiboon Suadsong said on Thursday.

There is no need for people to show up overnight or too early to reserve good spots, as officials would open the 22 screening points, where the hats would be handed out, at noon so people could sit at 23 zones along the route to welcome the procession by 3.30pm, he said. 

On May 4 and 6, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, Social Development and Human Security Ministry and Education Ministry would jointly host musical and cultural performances at Sanam Luang by pupils from various schools, he said.

Kraiboon made the comment after attending a meeting at the Defence Ministry of the committee tasked with providing security and order during the coronation.
