  • Magician Regardt Laubscher
  • hedgehogs, tarantulas, whippets
  • raptor and snake demos
  • tractors
  • draadkar grand prix wire-cart competition (the best selfmade, creatively decorated vehicle that completes the race with four wheels on the ground wins a prize)
  • stalls selling honest-to-goodness farm food, including pancakes and jaffles; roast beef and mutton; brownies and bazaar pudding; freshly baked bread; and traditional favourites like roosterkoek (bread cooked over a braai grid)
  • farm shop
  • Builders Trade Fair
  • King Price Insurance spinning wheel for entry to the Cash Cube

There’ll be live music to enhance the atmosphere, courtesy of Tasché – the youngest winner of The Voice SA – plus well-known local artists, Cobus and Christo. A Lollos & Lettie children’s show and the Lekkerland entertainment area is bound to keep the little ones busy.
