Bethanien Lutheran Church hosted their annual German Bazaar last Saturday.

The German inspired cultural event drew a full crowd of people who spent the day enjoying German delicacies, a meat market and various entertaining activities.

South Africa is known for its vibrant beauty and diverse cultures. During the industrial revolution in the late 18th century, turmoil forced circumstances to weaken in Germany and many citizens opted to leave the country in hopes of a better quality of life. In 1883, German missionaries settled in Port Shepstone and shortly after formed the German congregation. The German Bazaar began in the 18th century as a fund raising initiative to complete projects by the congregation. “I still have memories from my younger days; there was a big canvas bag lined with dry ice which carried ice cream that we were most excited about. The German bazaar was always a fun event to look forward to,” said Oscar Bruttman.
