All shops and restaurants will be open to join in the celebration. Get ready for a day filled with entertainment, delicious food, refreshing drinks, live music, and bustling markets. 

The fun starts on Van Der Riet Street with a jumping castle, Easter Egg hunt, and mouth-watering breakfasts and lunches from 10 am to 3 pm. Then take a stroll over Putt Bridge to Wharf Street from 3 pm for an afternoon and evening of live music, a second market, vibrant lights, tasty street food, two landmark restaurants to cater to your every whim, karaoke, a wife-carrying competition (win your wife’s weight in beer!) and even a thrilling walk-the-plank challenge right into the Kowie River!
