THE Mother’s Day Prawn Festival at the Fairview racecourse on Sunday, May 10, will provide the perfect opportunity for offspring to spoil their moms.

A supply of three tons of succulent prawns will be on sale in the Prawn Tent at R120/kg and they will be accompanied by chips or rice and a flavour choice of peri-peri or lemon butter.

Racing purists can look forward to the 54th running of the Grade 3 SW Security Solutions East Cape Derby and for the first time the Listed Dahlia Plate will be included on the nine-race schedule.

There will be a Mother’s Day market at the bottom of the grandstand where a variety of vendors will advertise and sell their merchandise. The proceedings will be peppered throughout the day by lucky draws sponsored by Makro and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University will stage a fashion show and fashion competition. The little ones will also be provided for as there will be a kiddies’ play area and pony rides.

The gates open at 11am, entrance is free and pre-sold prawn tickets can be purchased through Computicket. – REPORTER
