NELSON Mandela Bay’s annual Splash Festival will be held from March 25 to 28 at Hobie Beach.

Splash Festival Project Manager, Darren Mungur, said about 150 000 to 200 000 people attend the Splash Festival each year.

“The Splash Festival has been extended by one day and will now run from this Friday until Monday.

The focus for 2016 is on the reintroduction of water and beach-related sport. The various sporting codes include beach volley ball, jet ski races and a new sport called bossaball,” Mungur said.

Bossaball is a ball game between 2 teams and is played on an inflatable court. It is growing in popularity all over the world and combines elements of volleyball, football and gymnastics. The inflatable court have integrated trampolines on each side of the net, allowing players to bounce high to reach the ball.

Mungur added that rain will always be a threat with outdoor events but the show should go on.

“Any decision to halt the proceedings will be made by the respective authorities. We have the fireworks display on March 26 at 8pm. The only thing that will affect this is lightning but we’re able to still blast in rain,” he said.

The four-day Splash Festival will include stalls, activities and entertainment for the whole family. For more information about the Splash Festival visit, or contact (041) 364 0028. – REPORTER
