THE annual Portuguese Festival was held over the weekend in commemoration of the Portuguese ship São João that wrecked on Port Edward Beach in 1552. The ship ran around near modern-day Port Edward and was the first cargo ship to be wrecked on the SA coast. Every year mariners celebrate the remembrance with a feast of Portuguese treats. This year Zulu and Indian cuisine was part of the festival, which was hosted by Margate Round Table 46 and National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) at The Estuary Hotel and Spa, with a two day programme of dancing, treasure hunts and children’s entertainment area. - Supplied.
