City’s new fire tender at the Park

2011-05-14 00:00

THIS weekend’s Weekend Witness Cars in the Park promises several highlights for car lovers and general public alike.

For the car enthusiasts, there will be over 1 000 cars on display. Some of the rare and valuable cars will include a 1930s Bentley brought from Johannesburg. The Bentley will be one of the top five most valuable cars at the show. Another beauty to keep an eye out for is the Jaguar D-type, as well as the Jaguar E-type which is celebrating its 50th birthday this year.

With the theme of Restoration — Work in Progress there will also be an area with ten restoration specialists showing off their skills. Various cars in the process of restoration will be on display, to allow the public a glimpse of the elbow grease it takes to get a gleaming classic.

The whole family will be entertained at this year’s Weekend Witness Cars in the Park, as there will be a performance by the Caledonian Society marching band and local band, the BiFocals.

There will also be a display of micro cars, which are small cars designed to only carry two people. A special late entry has also been announced — the Pietermaritzburg fire department will be displaying the two new fire tenders just delivered, in Park Drive.

Weekend Witness Cars in the Park takes place in Alexandra Park tomorrow, from 6.30 am to 4 pm, entrance is R40 for adults and R20 for children and pensioners

To avoid traffic congestion, visitors should park in the northern area of the Park on the soccer fields and along the Duzi, near the cycle track and the Oval. The parking with the most convenient access will be next to the Kershaw Park tennis courts.

Visitors leaving the Park should exit via College Road.

Princess Margaret Drive will be closed to traffic in the vicinity of the hockey fields.
