THIS year even if the little silver fish and their hungry pursuers do not swim by our stunning shores there is a captivating set of district-wide “Sardine Season” events that will be of interest to visitors and residents.
As sample, there will be a number of Sardine Beach Tour events at certain beaches from Scottburgh to Port Edward. There will also be golf, tennis, fishing and multiple MTB cycling events.
On the cultural front the Maiden Ceremony at Kwa Nyuswa will captivate those wishing to experience the authenticity of our proud Zulu culture. The Inkundla Theatre Festival at Port Shepstone, the Portuguese Festival at Port Edward and the German Festival at Izotsha should also whet the public’s appetite.
Motor sport fans will also be able to watch supadrifting at the Dezzi South Coast Raceway at Oslo Beach.
Family orientated events (most of our events are) will be the annual South Coast Lions Show at Port Shepstone, the South Coast Wedding Show at Izotsha and the new Teddy Bear’s Picnic in Scottburgh.
As one can see from this selection there is a broad element of choice for the public and the list is longer than this.
We suggest for full details of all the events at this time of year one should access our website www.tourismsouthcoast. co.za or contact any one of our Visitor Information Centres
A number of committed people and sports and/or charitable organisations are behind these events and we suggest that all and sundry support and recommend the occasions so that we can have a truly value-adding mid-year season.
After Durban we are considered the most pro-active event related destination in KZN and this can do wonders for our reputation our quality of life and for leisure and tourism.
Please have an event-full, sunny and safe Sardine Season here in paradise.
