THE beachfront was abuzz with activity last week as the final preparations for the start of the SPAR Delight in Summer festival in Port Elizabeth were completed.

The Opening of the Season on Friday, December 16, kicked off what is sure to be a very entertaining festive season.

SPAR Eastern Cape’s Advertising and Promotions Controller, Roseann Shadrach, said they were delighted to be on board with this programme.

“We love our city and we believe that we have a social responsibility in contributing to initiatives like the SPAR Delight in Summer festival to help promote our region,” she said. “It is our first association with the festival and we are really excited with the offering.”

She said they were particularly proud of the Blue Flag status for King’s Beach, Humewood Beach and Wells Estate.

“We would like to invite those from near and far to sample our wonderful city this summer season.”

Event organiser Darren Mungur of Soul Good said everything was on track for a bumper period of festivities.

The festival will feature a wide variety of local and national musicians.

Port Elizabeth-born artist, Vusi Nova, will headline the Sizzling Sessions evening at Tramways on December 21, supported by a number of bands and artists.

On December 22, festival-lovers will get the chance for an open-air session in Happy Valley, with Carols by Candlelight being followed by two movies under the stars.

There will be a family day at the Springs Fiesta in Uitenhage where Idols celebrity, Bevin Samuels, is set to wow the crowd on December 27, followed by The Summer Sundowner concert at Hobie Beach on December 29.

“Party-goers can enjoy cocktails and a moment to relax at the seaside while being entertained by a number of quality artists,” said Mungur.

He said it would all end with a bang on New Year’s Eve when celebrations would take place at Hobie Beach and Wells Estate from 4pm.

“Freshly Ground will be one of the headline acts and the new year will be ushered in with a fireworks display at midnight,” he concluded.

Do not miss out on the beach fun this holiday. Get the family in the car and head down there for some much-needed relaxation.
