Lion Show weekend line-up

2016-07-14 06:00

THE Lions Club of Port Shepstone will be hosting their 31st annual South Coast Lions Show from 15 to 17 July at the Port Shepstone Country Club.

Mix 93.8FM will be broadcasting live from the event on Saturday 16 July and Sunday 17 July.

The weekend event will showcase a huge trade expo which involves hundreds of local businesses and entrepreneurs as well as bands in the beer tent, food, arena events, a fun fair with adrenaline rides, a comedy evening and the Lions MTB Classic Cycle Race.

In keeping with the spirit of global sport, the Burry Stander Foundation has taken a page out of France’s book as it announced the upcoming South Coast Lions Show Mountain Bike Classic will have a Le Tour de Burry theme.

The second edition of the event consists of a 10km race, 25km race and a 45km classic and will be held on Sunday, starting and finishing at Port Shepstone Country Club.

Mandie Stander said this is a big opportunity for them as the foundation.

“We’ve been given such a fantastic opportunity by the Lions to host the event again this year and wanted to do something unique. We think this is a fun theme and something that will set the South Coast Lions Show Mountain Bike Classic apart from other races,” said Stander.

She said watching people supporting the Tour de France, they thought it would be great if they could create a festival atmosphere.

“It would be wonderful if everyone could come on board and we could create a real Le Tour de Burry route on Old St Faiths road. The Tour de France’s main colour is yellow. They have a yellow jersey, green jersey and a white with red polka dot Jersey. We encourage everyone to play along with the theme – water tables to use their creativity, residents to window-dress their gardens and community members to create a cheerful vibe for the riders,” she said

There will be a prize for the best water table as voted by the riders. As part of entertainment Mel Miller, Rubber Duc, The Dixie Hillbillies, Rowan Stuart, The Circus Balloon plus plenty of other artists and events will be there.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to local charities. Entry is R50 for adults and R25 for pensioners and children under 18. - Supplied.
