Week 49 of 2013 Gansbaai News, Specials & Events


NEWS: ‘Tis the Season

Take in a deep breath… Ahh! The festive season is in the air! The month of December sneaked up on us this weekend, so here we are. And Gansbaai is kicking the first week of festive season off in a big way.

This Friday, December 6th we are officially switching on the Christmas Lights for this season. Each and everyone is invited to join in this jovial evening and meet at the OK Foods parking area. There we wait till the Christmas lights all along the main road are switched on to turn the street into a colourful display of our favourite Christmas scenes and marine animals. Also remember to take a drive around town to appreciate the winter wonderlands that the community have turned their houses into.

And then of course, on Saturday December 7th, is the Seafood Street Festival we’ve been waiting for since the Kreef Derby. This year’s Fees van die Ganse has been split into the earlier festival we saw in September and this weekend’s Seafood Street Festival. Stalls with all manner of freshly prepared seafood and goodies to feast your eyes on will be lining the streets of Gansbaai. For more information, please contact your friendly Gansbaai Tourism Bureau at 028 384 1439.

Let’s join in the festive spirit and support our town in the best way we know how!
