Week 39 of 2013 Gansbaai News, Specials & Events

NEWS: Braai and BARC

The long weekend was filled with the sound of chattering crowds and the lobtailing of beautiful Southern Right Whales. And the fun isn’t over yet.

For most the long weekend is extended til today, but for most today is just a nice little break in an otherwise hectic working week. The official public holiday is National Heritage Day, but us (as South Africans) being a jolly lot, this day has become better known as National Braai Day.

In Gansbaai, we’re celebrating the true South African style of ‘Sharing is Caring’ and showing our support to our local BARC. A vibrant show of animals and goodies galore, we won’t miss it for the world. Let us all show our support for all God’s creatures great and small!
