NEWS: Festivities All Around

The words on everyone’s lips and also out on the street is all the festivities going on this weekend! Careful planning is needed to make sure you don’t miss a single moment of excitement.

Scattered Links Gansbaai
The weekend starts off with the cheery get-together of the Scattered Links, then leading off to Saturday when the real whirlwind of activities start. Saturday morning starts off with the colourful hustle and bustle of the Herberg-Aan-See Basaar and doesn’t slow down from there. The adrenalin gets pumping for the Flower Power 4x4 Day to see what you and your Landy are made of. Others might prefer to head out onto the water and wrestle it out with the big boys in the Fresh Water Fishing Competition hosted by Lomond Wine Estate

Groet die Grotman in Gansbaai

Ending the night off, we return to the Pretorius Hall for an evening of entertainment with the proudly South African, Groet die Grotman
