AN action-packed line-up of sports and entertainment is planned for the inaugural Hill Fest, an outdoor celebration focusing on community, family and fun at The Durban Shongweni Club from 25 to 27 March.

Catering for all ages and interests, Hill Fest 2016 will have train rides, slides and inflatables to keep the children entertained while sports enthusiasts will be kept busy with the beach sports programme, including touch rugby, beach volleyball and beach soccer. All the necessary gear will be provided for participants.

Motorbike acrobat, Brian Capper, will captivate spectators with his superhuman feats of balance on his designed trail bike. Also showing off motorbike skills will be some of the country’s top freestyle motorcross (FMX) riders including world renowned “Sick” Nick de Wit, and his team, who will perform death defying stunts.

For the performers there will be regular opportunities to take to the stage for an enjoyable dance-off, and everyone will enjoy the Dig for Gold treasure hunt.

Top athletes will show their prowess during fitness demonstrations that will inform those watching to get in shape. Animal lovers will also be treated to an animal demonstration where four-legged friends will display their talents.

Leading local businesses will be displaying everything from cars to a range of useful lifestyle products, and in the arts and crafts section, home-made and handmade are the order of the day.

In the food court and beer garden visitors will be spoilt for choice. Well-known brands, including Afro’s chicken and Stoker’s Arms, will be in attendance, and music entertainment will be provided by James Robertson of Cubic Inch.
