IN celebration of Valentine’s Day and the end of the crocodile breeding season, Riverbend Crocodile Farm in Margate will once again this year will be hosting an open day from 9 am on Sunday.

Adults are encouraged to bring children who would not normally have this opportunity, to the farm. Children’s entry will be free of charge and adults will pay pupils’ rates, with the highlights being a snake demonstration at 2.30 pm, followed by crocodile feeding at 3 pm and then crocodile hatching at 3.30 pm.

This will be a wonderful opportunity for children to witness crocodiles hatching and an opportunity to hold a newly born crocodile. This fun afternoon will include a number of lucky draws for the children and Riverbend will also be providing some fun for the adults with Riverbend Art and Wine Gallery presenting a free “bubbly tasting” between 2 pm and 5 pm. Riverbend Crocodile will also be making a donation to Child Welfare, as in previous years. — Supplied.
