And i would think its common sense that you don't mix fireworks and alcohol:)
I don't think this wonderful idea is to ban drinking totally on the day itself. It's only to prohibit it at sites where specific Loy Krathong events are going on. Mind you, that sort of defeats the purpose for many people anyway.
So, I don't think the bars are going to be closed down as they are so often on other days of the year.
