Open-air fun day

2016-11-01 06:00

Head down to the Strandfontein sports complex for the annual Meet your Neighbour event on Saturday from 10:00.

The Proudly Strandfontein event, in the form of an open-air exhibition, aims to promote and showcase all that is positive.

Entry is free.

As an opportunity to introduce both residents and visitors to the talents, creativity and passion of locals and their neighbours, businesses also have an opportunity to sell their wares.

Organisations that have exhibited before include sports clubs, the Scouts, police, the City of Cape Town and various community support groups. This year’s event will be adding a few more activities to this programme.

“In our efforts to keep the event free of charge and open to the public, we are calling on community organisations, sport clubs, businesses and others to book stands to exhibit, fundraise or market at the event,” says Mario Oorstendurp of Proudly Strandfontein.

Dancers and singers will perform at the event. There will also be jumping castles, mini-golf, face painting, foozball, an obstacle course, five-a-side soccer and giant dominoes. A skate jam will take place from noon.
