Bangkok, 24 December 2020 – While COVID-19 has forced the annual Thai Red Cross Fair to skip the year, serious shoppers can still enjoy the Fair’s atmosphere and shop to their heart’s content with the online version of the Fair at https://www.งานกาชาด.com/. In addition to all sorts of products, activities, and livestreamed performances, the 2020 Thai Red Cross Fair is also making its first-ever appearance in Minecraft through a recreation of Lumpini Park within the game – constructed brick by brick by a team of talented builders from King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL).

In addition to the blocky sights to be seen, this Minecraft fair also doubles as a prelude to the Thai Red Cross Society’s upcoming Red Cross Fair Idea Challenge – a competition that tasks students with the mission of building their ideal version of the Fair on top of this Minecraft version.
