2016-09-21 06:00

A WEEKEND of great exhibitions, extreme biking demonstrations and outdoor family fun is planned for the Vodacom 4U Ballito Spring Fair taking place at Sugar Rush, Ballito from 1 to 2 October, from 9am to 5pm.

“KwaZulu-Natal experiences some of the best spring weather and we want to give people a chance to take advantage of this warm, relaxed lifestyle while enjoying some great food, music and entertaining activities,” said event organiser, Gavin Horn.

“The two-day celebration will be focused on family, community and fun in a safe, open-air setting.”

Visitors to the Vodacom 4U Ballito Spring Fair will be treated to a variety of quality exhibitions by leading property, automobile and retail organisations. Some of these will include Elan Group’s Blythedale Coastal Resort, Mount Richmore Estate, G2 Construction, Schloomfy Comfort Co, BMW Autohaus, Mercedes Benz uMhlanga, Ballito Ford, Land Rover Ballito, Vespa, Mascor, Hooked Up Motorsports and many others. There will also be several furniture and clothing retailers bringing with them high quality products for sale.

To ensure you don’t go hungry, a variety of food stalls will sell tantalising dishes while the beer garden will keep adults refreshed throughout.

A fully-equipped children’s play area is sure to be a hit with all youngsters under the age of 12. And setting the mood for this festive fair will be some of South Africa’s top musicians – including renowned artists James Robertson and Peter Guthrie of Spoonfeedas.

Those with a flair for treasure hunts can take full advantage of the ‘Dig 4 Gold’ challenge.

After purchasing a ticket, participants will enter a massive ball pit where they need to search for either a silver or gold coin, either of which will win the seeker a prize.

Those lucky enough to find the elusive gold coins will find themselves with a massive prize in the form of a cellphone, surfboard, hotel accommodation or other extravagant gifts.

Two of the country’s top bikers will keep audiences captivated with their life-risking demonstrations which will take place twice daily.

Red Bull FMX rider, “Sick Nick” de Wit, will show why he is such an internationally renowned freestyle motocross rider.

Having competed at national and regional motocross events from the age of 17, De Wit eventually found his niche in FMX.

He went on to take the 2002 South African FMX Championship and started riding professionally the following year, after which he went on to dominate the South African scene.

In 2004 he entered the international circuit but has most recently turned his focus on FMX demos where he shares his biking passion with audiences.

Also pulling in the crowds will be 10-time supermoto and trials’ champion, Brian Capper, renowned for his daredevil antics and obstacles. Riding motocross from the age of 9 and trial biking from 11, Capper took his first national title at 18 after which he competed in American National Championships where he placed 7th overall. Capper has also competed in the national off-road championship as well as winning the Roof of Africa title.

However, he is best known for his incredible stunts including biking over the Moses Mabhida Stadium arch in 2011 – 105m off the ground.

Make sure you don’t miss out on any of the action taking place at the Vodacom 4U Ballito Spring Fair by booking your tickets early.
