Exciting events

2010-05-28 00:00

MARITZBURG will become an epicentre of excitement this weekend with three top-class events happening within the city. The start of the Comrades Marathon, the Royal Show and Craft in the Park will draw people from all over the country to the borough.

This flurry of activity will inject a stream of cash into local businesses, while also allowing locals a chance to break the norm of their weekend routine.

These events will also allow Maritzburg the chance to show off what our city has to offer. Here’s holding thumbs that our streets will be clean and our local law enforcement officers don’t decide to take the weekend off too.

This triad of events will put us on the map as a metropolis of high-quality sport, arts and agricultural entertainment. The thrill and excitement these events are sure to bring will remind the country why we are the capital city of our diverse province.
