‘Eastern Extravaganza’ returns to Golden Horse

2016-11-02 06:02

THE annual Eastern Extravaganza will once again be hosted at the Golden Horse Casino on 5 Saturday November.

One of the festival’s aims is to honour the Indian culture through a display of different arts, talent and professional entertainment. This festival will also celebrate the end of the holy period, Diwali, otherwise known as the Festival of Lights.

The Eastern Extravaganza, currently in its 13th year, offers a variety of family orientated entertainment. This includes appearances by celebrated local artists, authentic dance groups, as well as a variety of aromatic Indian cuisines, crafts and cultural stalls.

“We are honoured to once again host the annual Eastern Extravaganza at our venue. We have seen an increase in attendance every year, with a crowd of 7 000 attending in 2010, and doubling to 14 000 last year. We are eager to see how many South Africans will be joining the celebrations this year,” said Moonyean Smit, Golden Horse Casino marketing manager.

The event also gives a platform for local charities to make their presence known. On the day, the local CANSA branch will host a spray-a-thon.

The event will take place at The Golden Horse Casino grandstands, and entrance is free.

“It is truly rewarding to see families coming out in their numbers from places as far as Durban, Tongaat and Chatsworth to celebrate the diverse Indian culture,” said Smit.
