If you're a resident or even an annual visitor to Gansbaai, you’ve probably noticed a tortoise or two crossing the road...
The weekend we have been waiting and planning for is finally here and the residents of Gansbaai and area cannot be more excited! And it’s not only because we are edging close to Summer and the fields around the Overberg are bursting with colour. This weekend is the Funky Fynbos Festival!
Consisting of a full weekend of activities for both young and old, this will be a festival like the Overberg has never seen:
Friday September 12th marks the opening of the food and craft stalls, the famous Fynbos Display and the final registrations for the Mountain Bike Race and Trail Run at De Uijlenes. Saturday kicks off with the MTB Races and continues with the fishing competition at Lomond, Reflexology by Bodhi Khaya, guided walks at Fynbos Retreat and Platbos Forest and the Gansbaai Foodie Meander. The fun continues with tractor rides, tag rugby and soccer games, live music, 4x4 fun and plenty of fun nature-loving activities for the kids. Sunday closes off with the African Mohair Fynbos Trail Run, more of the Fynbos Display, Reflexology, sustainable Fynbos harvesting and more live entertainment.
Be sure not to miss this excitingly Funky festival! See you there!
